Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty Announces 2016 BJC Fellows Program
The Baptist Joint Committee has opened the application process for young professionals to apply for its 2016 BJC Fellows Program. This program provides selected fellows the opportunity to deepen their legal, historical and theological understanding of religious liberty. Young professionals who want to deepen their religious liberty knowledge and develop tools to advocate for the cause can apply for the BJC Fellows Program, sponsored by the Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty.
Applications are available for the 2016 class, which includes a four-day educational seminar from July 27-31 at Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia. The seminar will equip the BJC Fellows for activism, utilizing Colonial Williamsburg’s educational resources in conjunction with preeminent scholars and BJC staff members. The program covers lodging and most travel expenses. There is no religious requirement for the program; all individuals with six years or less experience in their current profession are eligible. BJC Fellows must commit to being advocates for religious liberty in their houses of worship and communities after completion of the seminar.
