COLSON FELLOWS - CHURCH AFFILIATE 

Gain wisdom. Live faithfully. Act courageously.

"Christians who understand biblical truth and have the courage to live it out can indeed redeem a culture, or even create one. This is the challenge facing all of us in the new millennium.”
― Charles W. Colson, How Now Shall We Live?
This ten-month course takes you on a carefully curated journey to understanding the times and knowing what to do in community with like-minded people. 

Go beyond the ordinary. Be radically Christian.

Quarter One

Everyone has a worldview. Actually, a worldview has everyone. It is a mark of being created in the image and likeness of God. We are driven to make sense of the world and our place in it. Students will learn how to understand and identify worldviews, how they manifest in the resulting culture, and where they compare and contrast with the Christian worldview. 

Quarter Two

We are usually unaware of how deeply our culture shapes us. The Colson Fellows Program helps students recognize the subtle forces of culture on the ideas and values around us. This understanding equips students to identify areas of need and opportunities to make a difference. 

Quarter Three

Upon understanding worldview and culture, students are now able to analyze and interpret current cultural “flashpoints” such as sexual and racial identity, same-sex marriage, religious liberty, and sanctity of life. Students can respond with theologically grounded responses, making a positive difference in the culture around them. 

Quarter Four

Students study the idea of calling and bearing the image of God by exercising dominion and care over God’s world and making it better through our creative attention. The program concludes with the development of a personal mission plan that puts into practice all that the students have learned. Upon commissioning, Colson Fellows go on to implement their plans through their vocation, ministry, church, or local community.
