About The Event
About the Come & See
In 2006, the year TFI was launched, there were just five Fellows programs. Today, there are dozens of programs spreading across the United States. Our mission is to continue expanding the Fellows phenomenon to new churches and cities. If you are interested in forming a new Fellows program in your church, a great way to learn more is by attending our introductory training event called the TFI Come & See.
We offer scheduled Come & See events in the Northern Virginia/Washington DC area twice per year, in April and September. We will also bring the Come & See training event to your church or city if that is easier for you.
Each Come & See event will explain the model and structure of a successful Fellows program, approaches to teaching and discipleship, internship and housing strategies, staffing, campus recruitment, financials and all of the other aspects of running a program. The TFI Come & See is intended to be an introduction to the Fellows concept and also a significant step in the discernment process.
Come & See Schedule
DAY 1: 2:00p - 5:30p
DAY 2: 9:00a - 5:00p (including breakfast and lunch)
The TFI Come & See is hosted at McLean Presbyterian Church in McLean, VA, just inside the Washington, DC Beltway. McLean is halfway between Dulles International Airport and Reagan National Airport, so either one is an easy option. McLean Presbyterian Church is not within walking distance of a Metro stop, so we do recommend renting a car or using a ride sharing service for this event. There are several hotels in the McLean/Tysons/Falls Church/Arlington area that are within easy driving distance. A hotel list will be provided in your registration confirmation email.
The TFI Come & See costs $375 per person, which includes three meals.
What You Will Learn
The TFI Come & See is intended to help you understand all of the major components of a Fellows program. This is an ideal training program for churches that are deciding whether or not to launch a fellows program. It is also ideal for churches that have already decided to launch a program, but are still working through details of what is required to get it started. Basically, we strongly encourage every group thinking about starting, or preparing to start, a Fellows program to attend this training program. The program includes four in-depth workshops as well as lectures/discussion on the following topics:
- The Foundations of Fellows
- Getting Ready to Launch (including a Readiness Assessment Workshop)
- Program Strategy and Structure (including a Program Vision Workshop)
- Program Leadership
- The Essential Elements of a Fellows Program
- The Program Calendar (including a Timeline Planning Workshop)
- Administration and Finance (including an in-depth Budgeting Workshop)
- Recruiting and Admissions
- Pastoral Care and Mentoring
- Ticket type
