Hope United Church of Christ in Sturgeon Bay (Door County), Wisconsin is seeking a Scholar who is interested in a 30-day residency in May 2020.  We are specifically looking for a scholar/student with expertise in Reconstructionist Judaism. We see in this tradition a model for a “big tent” community of faith that is comfortable with a wide range of beliefs while operating within and respecting a beloved cultural tradition and identity.

Hope Church is a member of the United Church of Christ, a progressive denomination committed to racial, sexual, and gender justice. Although we come from a Christian perspective, we are looking for an opportunity for interfaith dialogue and learning. We do not expect the Scholar-in-Residence to have any previous experience in a Christian setting. However, we are looking for someone with a willingness to engage a community that loves to learn.

The Scholar would present three one-hour Adult Education programs, speak during a worship service, and meet with members of the congregation once a week to share your knowledge through informal conversation.

Hope UCC would provide:

  • Time for study/writing
  • Housing
  • Stipend
  • Transportation reimbursement to and from Sturgeon Bay, WI
  • Some meals
