YOUNG BAPTIST LEADERSHIP AWARD
The Current network gathers at the annual Churchworks Conference, where the Young Baptist Leadership Award is given. The award is presented annually to a young Baptist, clergy or congregational leader, who represents a growing interaction with and support of the Fellowship. This person has a demonstrated ministry to peers and colleagues of every generation. The recipient has also engaged the Fellowship in leadership and servanthood. The award is given to affirm the recipient, to encourage the younger generation of Fellowship Baptists, and to excite the continued interaction among the generations.
