Young adults who serve internships with Project Transformation will have an opportunity for early admission and scholarship consideration at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, thanks to a new partnership.
Nearly 400 young adults serve missional internships with Project Transformation annually, and the vast majority of alumni stay actively involved in ministry and service following their internship.
“A partnership between Project Transformation and Garrett feels like the most natural thing in the world. As both Garrett and PT focus on child advocacy, young adult ministry, and public ministry, this partnership is a wonderful way to more formally continue this kingdom-building work with one another.” Rev. Katie Fahey, Director of Admissions and Recruitment
This agreement also strengthens the relationship between Garrett and Project Transformation by encouraging Garrett students to serve in leadership roles as Project Transformation “house pastors,” gaining hands-on college ministry experience and possibly earning field education credit for their experience. In addition, Garrett will work with Project Transformation National to provide coaching, mentorship and other resources to house pastors.
“We are thrilled about this partnership as it further realizes the shared goal of Garrett-Evangelical and Project Transformation, which is to prepare high caliber leaders for Christian ministry,” says Casey Camacho, VP of Programs for Project Transformation National. Several Project Transformation alumni have graduated from Garrett over Project Transformation’s 21-year history, and we are eager to deepen this relationship and encourage more young adults who serve with Project Transformation to consider theological education at Garrett as a next step in discerning God’s call on their lives.
