This year, we are excited to welcome fellows from Malawi, Uganda, and Nigeria!
We currently have 6 fellows engaged in their second year within our school of leadership and 5 who've just begun their journey with UPI.
As part of their fellowship experience, they form an international choir that performs in churches throughout the country. Interested in having the UPI fellows come to your church or event?
