The Tow Preaching Fellowship was established through a gift from David and Eleanor (nee Tow) Walker to Metropolitan United Church. Metropolitan United Church and Emmanuel College have together developed the Tow Preaching Fellowship to further the art and practice of preaching.
Its purpose is to recognize, encourage and strengthen excellence in preachingin the United Church of Canada.
One Tow Preaching Fellowship will be offered annually in either the Fall (September-November) or Winter (January-March) term to a mid-career minister. It is based at Emmanuel College, as part of Emmanuel’s Sabbatical programme. The recipient will receive funding of $3,000 toward a two-to-three month full-time sabbatical in Toronto. February 1, 2017 is the deadline for a September 2017 sabbatical, notification by March 1 2017. Further details.
