Adults who feel a call to work for justice or are eager to integrate faith and justice work into their lives in meaningful and transformative ways are invited to apply now for the Southern New England cohort of the Jubilee programwhich will launch this fall.

The Conference has partnered with the Justice Leadership Program (JLP) to offer this six-month online program. JLP is a faith-based educational and networking platform designed to help individuals and communities transform the world. It was formed in 2012 as an intentional community program for young adults, who worked in justice-based nonprofits and justice-centered churches in the Seattle area while living together and learning the tenets of simple living, spirituality, and basic theories of justice.

The program expanded in later years to include Jubilee, a non-residential nine-month commitment for adults who want to deepen their Progressive Christian faith and learn practical organizing skills with a community of their peers.

“We are excited to partner with the Justice Leadership Program to pilot this cohort for members, authorized ministers, and others in the Southern New England Conference,” said Rev. James D. Ross II, Minister for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. “Our partners bring expertise, commitment, and deep faith commitment to this work. I pray that anyone who seeks deeper engagement with the principles of justice work will consider applying to take part in this cohort.”

Program participants will deepen their understanding, learn practical skills, and gain the confidence to take meaningful action. Each month will include skill-building workshops, spiritual reflection, and group support. Participants also will be expected to volunteer with a justice-seeking nonprofit organization, and to actively engage the work of justice within their home congregations.

The program cost is $500 per participant, which helps to support the cost of program instructors and other expenses. Individuals who require financial assistance to participate are invited to seek support from their home congregations, or to contact Rev. Ross
