The Fellowship Program

We invite you to join us at Christ Church East in Jacksonville, Florida this Fall for our Fellowship Program — a program committed to equipping believers for gospel leadership in the world. The Fellowship Program is a nine-month program for adult men and women from diverse backgrounds and vocations. In order to equip emerging leaders to bring about social, cultural, and spiritual renewal, we focus on three areas:

Gospel-Centered Theological Training

The core of our program will be the conviction that the gospel impacts every area of life. Drawing from the richness of Reformed Tradition, our participants will develop a worldview that is sufficiently robust to engage the diverse and complex culture of Jacksonville.

Leadership Development

Participants will have the opportunity to clarify their callings by group discussion around assigned reading, interacting with a community of peers from diverse backgrounds and vocations who are committed to each others' spiritual growth and calling.

Spiritual Formation

The Fellowship Program will foster personal and spiritual development through daily devotions, intense study, and relationships with pastoral leaders and mentors from the congregation.

Program Details and Commitment

The Fellowship Program is a nine-month course running from September 6, 2018 to May 16, 2019. During these nine months, participants will meet from 6:30 – 8:00 a.m. each Thursday morning to discuss weekly readings on various topics of discipleship. Participants will also engage in daily devotional scripture readings from the church’s Community Bible Reading plan. Additionally, participants will complete two assignments: a personal testimony in the Fall and a Cultural Renewal Project in the Spring. These assignments will be presented by participants to the group, and they will be challenged to think deeply in two areas: their own spiritual story in light of God’s covenantal story of redemption, and how they can participate in gospel renewal in the world.

The participant fee is $100, which covers the cost of books and materials.

Applications will be accepted through August 16, 2018. Participants who best demonstrate the following qualities will be selected: 1) desire to grow spiritually; 2) ability to fulfill the responsibilities of the program; and 3) leadership potential.
