They may not have the fragrance of frankincense or the mystery of myrrh, but here are three gifts worth their weight in gold to your faith community.
By Nick Sollog
ECF Capital Campaign Consultant Nick Sollog relates his experience with a church that was in the middle of a feasibility study when their rector was elected Bishop of another diocese. All hope was not lost! The vestry found two chairs to lead the campaign, which not only reached its primary goal but its challenge goal too.
By Lindsey Harts
Lindsey Harts grew up doing “code red drills” where she hid from a pretend shooter. She feels that this common experience among millennials helped lead to the generation’s demand for radical authenticity. As she says, “in a world where shootings are live-streamed on the internet…you tend to have a very low tolerance for nonsense.”
By John Lynch
John Lynch was always expected to be a leader as a millennial. He thinks it’s because he continued to show up in church. Here he shares his impressions of leadership and a lesson that he learned from members of the oldest generation—Trust in God and pray.
By Maria Bautista Vargas
Maria Bautista Vargas is privileged to have been supported in the church and connected to transformative leadership opportunities, but recognizes that there are many other young adults without such opportunities. Which is a shame, because in her experience young adults are eager and hungry to serve!
David Patiño and Atticus Zavaletta share their experiences as young trans people of faith and the gifts of Trans/Queer leadership.
