Disciples of Welcome Program Accepting Applicants
Disciples of Welcome will provide a container for 50 pastors serving congregations in North Carolina, in a learning journey model that draws from popular education pedagogy and builds on the central role of hospitality and the table in the U.S. South. The program is designed to accompany the pastors in developing their skills sets in holding "Brave Space" — what we call the practices and container settings for meaningful personal and social transformation.
