"'Massachusetts has been the wheel within New England, and Boston the wheel within Massachusetts. Boston therefore is often called the 'hub of the world,' since it has been the source and fountain of the ideas that have reared and made America." -The Rev. F.B. Zinckle, Last Winter in the United States (1868)
This is Boston.
Our city doesn't take its place in the American story lightly. Boston has been central to European settlement on the continent, to the formation of the country, to learning, to finance, to technological innovation. The nation is rooted in this city's civic tradition, intellectual foundations, literature, arts, entertainment, and sports history. Boston has always set cultural trends for the globe, for good and for ill.
This pride of place borders on arrogance, but it’s hard to argue with the evidence. Because of this historic role, many of us see Boston as a key to the spiritual renewal of the world beyond its borders.
And something is happening here. There is a “quiet revival” going on, visible to many who are deeply invested in the common good of our city. The Boston Fellows is just one of many organizations determined to heed the prophet's call: “Seek the welfare of the city… for in its welfare you will find your welfare.” (Jeremiah 29:7) People are praying, working, dreaming for God’s renewed favor on everyone here.
At the Boston Fellows, we are committed to workplace excellence, to the good of Greater Boston, and to Christ-like living. We want to play our part in forming a culture characterized by integrity, character, lasting achievement, the well-being of all in the community, and gratitude toward our Creator and Redeemer. We want a legacy of influence built the hard way, through earned trust and results.
We are looking for Fellows willing to invest in this city, for a purpose beyond themselves.
Does that sound like you?
