Meet Graham Wilder, 2023 Summer Intern

Hi y’all, I’m Graham. I’m a rising senior at Davidson College in North Carolina, studying English literature. I grew up in DC and went to Temple Micah for Hebrew school up until my bar mitzvah before dropping off the radar for a little while. I plan to come back in full force with my belated religious participation this summer, and I’m excited to meet you all. In my spare time, I like to cook, work out, read from my great books list, and write short stories.

About the Davidson College Congregational Fellowship

Congregational Fellowships to explore religious leadership and service in any tradition are available to students with a strong record of academic achievement, campus leadership, and concern for others.

Juniors are nominated by faculty, staff, and area clergy. Nominees may or may not be considering a religious occupation (as a clergyperson or professional lay leader), but community members perceive them as having gifts for such leadership and service.

Fellows take part in a supervised, congregation-based summer internship after their junior year under the mentorship of a seasoned clergyperson. Early in the fall semester of their senior year, they gather as a cohort with the college chaplain to reflect on what they have learned over the summer about congregational leadership and about their own sense of calling or career direction.
