Ways to Get Involved

The Common Ground Project offers opportunities for pastors,
young adults, seminarians and seminary faculty to get involved.



Join a network of church leaders of color in communities that are committed to supporting and fostering the development of young adults of color for Christian ministry. Find fellowship and support among other church leaders and serve as a mentor to young adults considering calls to ministry.

Learn more about the Pastors of Color Networking Gatherings for 2010. The first opportunity was held at the Cenacle Retreat and Conference Center in February. There will be a second gathering at the same location October 25-27 . The opportunity to be involved this year has passed. Learn more or apply to be part of next year's gatherings here.





Are you a young adult of color that is committed to your church and community, but seeks to make connections with others in imagining a new way forward? Then join us! Meet other young leaders and be part of mentoring relationships with pastors, scholars, and church leaders.

The next opportunity will be at the Taste of Seminary Seminar for Young Adults considering theological education: July 9-15, 2011. Taste will be hosted at McCormick Theological Seminary. Learn more or register here.





The Common Ground Project will put together a series of consultations in 2010-2011. This consultation is for scholars, pastors and other church leaders to share best practices and emerging movements in ministry among the next generation of church-goers and leaders through various mentoring relationships.
