About The Event
In 2006, the year TFI was launched, there were just four 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 new cities. If you are interested in forming a new fellows program, a great way to learn more is by attending one of our introductory events called the TFI Come & See.
To make this training program more accessible, it is now offered online via Zoom. If you have a larger group and would prefer a private onsite or online course, those options are available. Please contact us for more information about pricing for onsite and private online training.
Each TFI Come & See event will explain the model and structure of a successful Fellows program, approaches to teaching and discipleship, internship and housing strategies, staffing, 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.

What You Will Learn
The TFI Come & See will help you understand 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 started. 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 readiness assessment 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
