Davidson, North Carolina
Davidson Fellows is a 9-month leadership and discipleship program designed to equip and develop future leaders, helping them to integrate their work and faith and live a life worthy of the calling they have received. (Ephesians 4:1)
During the Fellows year we’ll focus on five things:
Professional Development: We’ll help fellows find a part-time position in their field of interest, and as they gain experience, build a network, and develop their resume, our fellows will also explore how to integrate their faith into their work in a meaningful and winsome way. Throughout the year there will also be retreats, seminars, and workshops to help discern vocation and calling.
Story: We are all part of a story. We’ll spend time coming to more fully know God’s Story in Scripture and will explore how our own stories – our past, present, and future – fit within the redemptive Story that God is writing in our world and in our lives.
Service: We believe service is at the heart of the Christian life. We’ll serve regularly in our church and our community and will also challenge ourselves to be servants & ministers of reconciliation in our families, workplaces, & communities.
Formation: We’ll invite God to shape our whole selves – stretching our minds through academic study, refreshing our souls through silence, rest, and contemplation, and strengthening our hearts through mentorship, community, and prayer.
Adventure: The Christian life was meant to be an adventure – and we’ll practice how to lean into the unknown with boldness and joy as we experience the richness and depth of life in Christian community.
