Life Together Community is inspired by the ancient prophet Micah’s call to “do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly.” We are a Christian community of artists, activists, scholars, and ministers committed to both personal and social change. We believe God has a dream of liberation of all people and we are called to play a part in making this dream a reality.
Our mission is to cultivate the next generation of prayerful and prophetic leaders, through spiritual practice, social justice, leadership training, and community building. One way we do this is through our ten-month fellowships throughout Eastern Massachusetts—in Boston, Lawrence, and Fall River.
Each year, Life Together selects up to 30 fellows from a pool of over 250 applicants. They range in age from 21 to 32 and come from a diverse range of racial, economic, geographic, and religious backgrounds. Each fellow has demonstrated a deep commitment to spiritual growth and working for social justice. They are willing to work in challenging situations and emotionally mature.
During their year, Life Together fellows:
work for social justice in schools, non-profits, and churches
grow as leaders through training and spiritual practice
live in community with one another
Life Together fellows work 32 hours each week in schools, non-profit organizations, or churches. Click here for more information on current positions. Some of the social impact areas for Boston fellows include education reform, youth leadership, healthcare reform, environmental justice and community gardening. There are opportunities for community organizing, direct service, or public policy work.
Fellows also spend one day per week developing the leadership skills, spiritual depth, and relationships that support Life Together fellows to become more prayerful and prophetic leaders.
Fellows serve from mid-August through June.
