The Gainesville Fellows program is a nine-month spiritual leadership development program aimed at helping recent graduates and young professionals transition successfully to faithful participation in God’s kingdom. Fellows will engage God’s grand narrative through Bible study and theological coursework. They will explore their own stories and giftings as they begin to discover their unique design and calling. They will encounter the rich opportunities and deep needs of our own community as they participate intimately in the life of the local church and larger city of Gainesville. Fellows can expect meaningful work through their internship, transformational community through the larger Fellows class and church bodies, and rich opportunities to serve the city through their daily work and service alongside inspiring organizations and non-profits.
The Gainesville Fellows Program is hosted through an ecumenically minded set of church partners that provides a beautiful expression of the local body of believers. This network transcends individual church and denominational lines while remaining firmly committed to faithfully following Jesus and participating fully in God’s kingdom. Gainesville is a rapidly growing and vibrant city for young professionals. It is an ideal location for professional development and advancement as it continues to benefit from a large start up population springing from the many resources at the University of Florida. Gainesville offers access to numerous outdoor activities – beaches, springs, and trails – as well as numerous cultural events – concerts, local arts, sporting events, and festivals. Come join us in the good work of loving and serving Gaineville!
