Wellesley Village Church received a Lilly Grant in 2002 to help us develop new clergy in the context of a vibrant congregation. The residency program has become an integral part of who we are and how we serve the wider church. This mission was so important to us that, when the grant expired, we raised funds to continue the program. We welcome the gifts of fresh leadership and new voices that our Residents bring, and look forward to seeing how God will shape us through their presence. We are humbly honored by the task of helping form current and future leaders for the church. There will be information sessions in January and February using Zoom. To participate, please send us your email address at Interviews will begin in early March.
