Young Leaders in Ministry Fund open again for applications

The Church of Ireland Youth Department’s next round of applications for the Young Leaders In Ministry Fund is now open and the closing date for this is Wednesday, 31st May.

The fund is open to young people aged between 15 and 25 years who can demonstrate a current involvement in the Church of Ireland.  

It seeks to support training and development courses, mission teams, leadership opportunities and placements that can be shown to:

1. significantly develop the faith of the young adult applicant;

2. grow the skills of the applicant especially, but not confined to, leadership skills; and

3. be of significant use to the ministry of the Church of Ireland in the 12 months following the completion of the opportunity.

Please do share widely in your networks and with your young people / leaders – this can make a significant difference to a young person’s experience and we have seen great uptake with the Fund since its inception.

The application form is available at this link.
