Program Details

1. STUDY

The Fellows program runs Labor Day to Memorial Day. In these nine months, Fellows engage seminal texts for a theology of work and culture: God’s commitment to his Creation, the importance he gives to their work, why the needs of the most vulnerable matter to God, our role in culture-making, and how to bring change and maintain hope in a world of fallen institutions.

Once a week, Fellows gather in small groups to share food, discuss the week's readings, apply truth to their lives, pray for and encourage each other.

Once a month the groups come together for in-depth teaching from subject-matter experts. 

Our roster of presenters has included: 

2. SPIRITUAL LIFE

Strengthening our insights and capacity is only part of the work. Personal growth requires good soil and cultivation. The heart of the Boston Fellows program is the development of habits of the heart, classic spiritual disciplines and perspectives to help you grow long beyond the program year. It’s all off-the-job training. Just as athletes and soldiers and surgeons practice their skills until these become literally a “second nature,” so we entrench ourselves in practices designed to form our souls.

3. INTENTIONAL COMMUNITY

It really does make all the difference. Our tech-savvy, social-media empowered world has connected ideas, people, and resources in ways our world has never experienced before. The darker side of this hyper-connectivity, many digital natives regretfully realize, is a life of fragmented identities and superficial relationships. Join a group of peers committed to something much more, eternal ends.

Jump Into Adventure

Fellows also share in outdoor adventures during three weekend retreats — close to Labor Day, Mid-winter, around Memorial Day—in partnership with the peerless La Vida Center for Outdoor Education and Leadership. Fellows take a break, enjoy God’s creation, bond with each other, and get time alone with God to reflect. Fellows push themselves---a little or a lot---in outdoor experiences following La Vida’s “challenge by choice” philosophy.
