12th Annual National Fellows Conference
-- Individual Attendee Registration --

About the Conference

Each year, the community of fellows programs gather together in the Washington DC area for the TFI National Fellows Conference. Occurring near the end of the program year, this conference is a time for fellows to see old friends, reflect on all that has been learned, and prepare for life after the program. Most fellows programs use this time to tour the Capitol Region, visit elected representatives, and learn about some of the global companies and nonprofits in this area. PLEASE JOIN US!​

Rev. Dr. Irwyn Ince. Irwyn Ince began his career as an engineer and project manager. Sensing a call to ministry he helped plant City of Hope Presbyterian Church in Columbia, MD. During seminary, he developed a personal mission statement that still guides his work: “The ministry of reconciliation as demonstrated in the local church by the gathering of people from diverse backgrounds, cultures, and ethnicities is the natural outworking of a rich covenantal theological commitment.” He now shares this vision as pastor and director of the Grace DC Institite for Cross-

Cultural Mission. He received his D.Min. from Covenant Theological Seminary; his M.A. in Religion from Reformed Theological Seminary; and his B.S. in engineering from City University of New York. He and his wife, Kim, have four children.

Rev. Dr. Walter Kim. Walter Kim is a pastor, scholar, and thought leader with a passion to see the Gospel impact lives, transform communities, and change culture. He currently serves as a pastor at Trinity Presbyterian Church in Charlottesville, VA. Previously, he ministered for fifteen years at Park Street Church in downtown Boston, one of the oldest evangelical churches in America. Walter serves on the board of the National Association of Evangelicals and Christianity Today.  Walter received his Ph.D. from Harvard University in Near Eastern languages and civilizations; his M.Div. from 

Regent College in Vancouver; and his B.A. from Northwestern University in philosophy and history. He is married to Toni Kim, and they have two teenagers.
