The Memphis Fellows Program provides recent graduates with the tools they need for their personal and professional growth beyond college. Fellows are equipped to become responsible, confident, Godly men and women who are prepared to take on adulthood. The inextricable link with the city of Memphis provides a path for becoming an adult who is invested in his or her city. Fellows not only learn about God’s Kingdom but take part in bringing to fullness in Memphis. The program opens the door for deep connection to a local church and its members and staff, connection to local businesses and key industry leaders, and connection to a peer group with whom to share the experience of being a Memphis Fellow.
Memphis is a city with much to offer! From a wide variety of incredible restaurants to a thriving arts scene to the beloved Memphis Grizzlies, Memphis is full of fun! With fun annual events like Memphis in May and the St. Jude Marathon, it’s no wonder Memphians love their city!
Like any city, Memphis is not without its struggles. During the Memphis Fellows program, you will learn about the historic and socioeconomic reasons for some of the city’s struggles. But as a Fellow, you don’t just learn about the problem. You get to be a part of the solution. Memphis is a city that cares; there are a wealth of non-profit organizations that are locally focused. As a Fellow, you will volunteer weekly at a non-profit of your choosing. You will visit and learn about organizations that are making a difference in the lives of Memphians and are changing the city for the better. You will meet key leaders who are dedicated to making Memphis look more like God’s Kingdom.
John 1:1-5 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”
