McCormick Theological Seminary

Fellowship in Prayer awarded in 2016 a Sacred Journey Grant to McCormick Theological Seminary’s Center for Faith and Service in order to support development of a new curriculum, Prayers of the People, an online 12-week course for young adults engaged in volunteer service programs.  The course shows students how social location has been reflected and contested in and through prayer; and how prayer continues to be a spiritual, bodily, affective, and social "event."

About The Center for Faith and Service

Based out of McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago, Illinois, the Center for Faith and Service works to develop new programs and identify existing resources that support the church to be present and relevant in the lives of young adults. Through a variety of initiatives, The Center partners with seminaries, summer camps, colleges, youth corps, denominations and local congregations to create programs and resources that help young people connect their passions for service and justice with their faith.
