About The Event
About the Come & See
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.
For 2022, due to the ongoing COVID situation, our main training program has moved online. We will also bring the Come & See training event to your church or city if that is easier for you. Please contact us for more information about pricing for onsite training.
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, recruitment, financials and all of the other aspects of running a program. The 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: Session 1: 11:00a - 1:00p / Session 2: 2:30p - 4:30p Eastern Time
DAY 2: Session 1: 11:00a - 1:00p / Session 2: 2:30p - 4:30p Eastern Time
Due to the COVID situation, the TFI Come & See will be an online event. Prior to the event, you will receive details about how to connect to the individual sessions.
The TFI Come & See training program costs $345 per person. The price includes a participant guidebook and various program readiness assessment tools.
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
