Industry Cohorts


Industry Cohorts

Industry cohorts are short-term (8 to 12 meetings) programs designed to move participants in the same direction as the full, 9-month Boston Fellows program---equipping participants to serve God and neighbor in the working world through spiritual formation, intellectual and professional development, and a community of peers.

But industry cohorts require a lower level of commitment, while also providing the opportunity to go deeper with peers from the same professional field of service. As such, they are ideal for alumni of the full program, as well as those not able to commit to the full program at this time.

Participation in an industry cohort entails a commitment to these elements:

  • Daily, common devotional disciplines, following a common format together. (About 15+ minutes daily.)
  • Readings/assignments. (About 1 hour weekly)
  • An initial 24-hour "camp-in" retreat to jump-start the cohort.
  • Meetings weekly or every other week: sharing and prayer for one another, discussion. (2 hours each)


In partnership with Boston Healthcare Fellowship! Moving from biblical and theological foundations for work and cultural engagement, to Christian perspectives on healthcare, to specific issues and applications in healthcare, the cohort will begin with a 24-hour "camp-in" October 6-7, followed by eight meetings on Tuesday evenings from 7-9:30 p.m. at Park Street Church (1 Park St, Boston, MA 02108). Apply below. 

Tuition is $95 and includes all materials, retreat costs, and operational expenses.

This cohort will meet every other week in Spring 2018. More details soon.


Check back later in the fall for information on cohorts in more industries beginning Spring 2018.




Note: the following is an application to short-term, industry-specific cohorts, NOT to the nine-month Boston Fellows program.

If you experience technical problems completing the following form, please email operations@bostonfellows.com.

Begin your application by doing the following:

1) Answer the following short-answer questions elsewhere to copy and paste to this form. (The form does not allow you to save your work and return later.)

2) Fill out this brief survey.

3) Email the address of your detailed Linkedin profile, and a recent headshot of yourself if you do not have one in your profile, to operations@bostonfellows.com, subject "Applicant'sName_Healthcare". (Attach the photo, rather than inserting it in the body of the email.) If you do not yet have a LinkedIn profile, we recommend creating one. LinkedIn gives you a platform to express your values, skills, and experience while also connecting you to other people in your field and the other program participants. Clarifying your vision for work and meeting others involved in healthcare are both important aspects of the cohort, and this tool helps.
