ECF has a long-standing commitment to raising up learned leaders for the Episcopal Church. Since 1964, ECF has awarded 214 Fellowships to individuals pursuing advanced academic studies and special ministries with the aim of educating and equipping future clergy and lay leaders.
The Fellowship Partners Program has evolved over the decades to adapt to the changing needs of the Church, society, and the world, yet its purpose of encouraging talented leaders remained the same. ECF Fellows are involved in all aspects of the Church’s life.
ECF has named four individuals named to the 2019 Fellows class — Tucker Adkins, Francisco Garcia, Callie Swanlund, and our own Br. Christopher McNabb. These innovative and emerging leaders are pairing their expertise with their passion to make a positive impact on the Episcopal Church and beyond.
Br. Chris was awarded a grant to continue his work with immigrant communities and first responders.
