NF FELLOWS: 2020
"We cannot obey Jesus if we spread false ideas about our Muslim neighbors or if we fail to love them well. That's why I appreciate the work of Neighborly Faith that helps believers understand the Muslim community and equips them with tools to help them fulfill the mission of God."

Fear of Muslims is increasingly common among Christians. Meanwhile, hate crimes targeting Muslims are at an all time high. After years of championing Christ-like love and leadership among other faiths, we are training the next generation to lead with neighborly faith.
The competitive fellowship will equip a cohort of Evangelical college students to lead initiatives that seek justice for and build friendships with Muslims in their community.
We want to invest in the unique visions and capacities of college students who are ready to live and lead with a public Christian faith. NF will give them an inspirational experience that exposes them to what is possible through their leadership, as well as the funding to make it happen.
Fellows will be equipped with transferable leadership skills, dialogue tools, biblical training, management strategies, organizational partners, and networks that will help them to address fear of Muslims, communicate how their Christian faith contributes to the common good, and build promising careers in ministry and/or public leadership in an increasingly diverse society.
Fellowship alumni have been propelled to positions in faith institutions and the public square.
For 2020, Fellows' term will be: February 1 to December 20, 2020.
Muslim immigration is posing a question to American Evangelicals: Will we treat our new Muslim neighbors as a problem to be solved, a threat to be neutralized, or will we see their arrival as an opportunity to relearn the hospitality that Christ taught us? Neighborly Faith has been helping the evangelical community answer this question.

I am grateful that Neighborly Faith invites evangelicals into an interfaith engagement that reflects both charity (a love for neighbor) and clarity (honesty about our beliefs.)
They chart a path of integrity that embraces both the Great Commandment and the Great Commission.
A Better Country
Neighborly Faith challenges and equips Evangelicals to engage people of other faiths in a loving, thoughtful, and winsome manner.
Neighborly Faith is a much-needed resource in an age of fear and confusion around the question “Who is my neighbor?”
