Strong Tower FellowshipMacon, Georgia
The Strong Tower Fellows Program is a nine-month, Biblically-focused life and leadership development program for recent college graduates who are seeking to learn, serve, work, and grow together in preparation for building Christ's Kingdom in their future life circumstances and callings. The goal is to develop you spiritually to become part of the next generation of redemptive contributors and Christ-centered leaders in the marketplace, in ministry, in your family, and in your community reflecting the truth of Abraham Kuyper's declaration that Christ declares every square inch of this world and our lives as His.
Your time will be spent studying and experiencing what it looks like to be a follower of Christ in your vocation, in your city, and in your relationships. The ground for this teaching and application will be your paid internship, community service, an area of ministry focus in the church, seminary class, focal Bible studies, mentoring by an older Christian, and life among the Strong Tower family.
The program is based here at Strong Tower Fellowship which is housed in a beautiful historic building in Pleasant Hill, an urban core neighborhood in the heart of Macon. We have a growing youth ministry at multiple levels that will provide ample opportunities for learning and practicing the principles of discipleship and investing in the lives of the up and coming generation. We also serve at the Rescue Mission of Middle Georgia at which there will be opportunities to serve in prayer, discipleship, and potentially preaching if that is part of your calling in ministry.
The Strong Tower Fellows Program will grant you the opportunity to learn and practice the powerful truth of Isaiah 58 and Matthew 25:31-46 which calls us as saints to experience the glory of God and the presence of Christ through engaging the poor of whom we are chief apart from obedience to this calling. Our prayer is that this Fellowship will serve to mold you into an all-of life disciple who seeks to "do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God." (Micah 6:8)

Charlotte Fellows graduates will complete their nine months having cultivated a much more expansive view of the Gospel, deeply impacting the ways in which they work at a career, build relationships, serve their community, and worship and serve their local church.
We are looking for young men and women - mature in their desire to know Christ - who understand that to know and enjoy God is the chief end of life but are not quite sure exactly how that truth plays out in their adult life. The Charlotte Fellows is tailored toward men and women who either feel that God is preparing them for a career in the marketplace or wrestling with calling altogether?people saying things like, "I desire to love Christ with my whole heart in my professional career, but I don't know what that should or could look like."
Each Charlotte Fellow lives with a host family, works a 3-day paid internship, meets weekly with a mentor, receives professional vocational counseling, serves one morning every week at Brookstone School (a K-6 private Christian school for low income families), is a part of the local church, completes 6 credits of graduate level coursework accredited by Reformed Theological Seminary and tailored to the Charlotte Fellows, engages in weekly Roundtable nights with community leaders from various backgrounds, engages in a weekly Fellows Bible study, and builds lasting relationships within the Charlotte Fellows community. Charlotte Fellows will also take several weekend retreats, including the National Fellows Conference in Washington D.C., and spend a week in New Orleans working with St. Roch Community Church to serve the people of that community.
Our Charlotte Fellows community is made up of talented and creative people who are excited to pour into recent college grads, and Charlotte is a great city ? an ideal place to spend nine months cultivating this Christ-centered foundation for your adult life.

Kinston Fellows ProgramKinston, North Carolina
The Kinston Fellows Program places a special emphasis on glorifying the Lord at work and in the community. On the work front, we offer opportunities in medicine, law, real estate, small business, education, ministry, and others. We work five days a week, at least 25 hours a week, in order to prepare our fellows for the realities of the future. We also consider our work to be apprenticeships as opposed to internships, where your work place boss will be actively mentoring you and helping you to develop useful skills. In the community, we have a passion to not only grow in our walks with Jesus but also to be a part of helping those with little hope. Kinston offers an amazing opportunity to do this given our community's high level of poverty. Throughout the year, you will also get to go on some amazing trips, meet some extraordinary people, and receive some amazing lifelong tools and lessons, all the while living and learning with a family in the Kinston community.
The Kinston Fellows are excited to celebrate our fifth anniversary with our sixth class of fellows for the 2012-2013 year. Please check out our website. There, you will find lots of details on our plans for the coming year as well as hear about the amazing years that we have enjoyed in the past.
Hope FellowsCincinnati, Ohio
We are hopeful that Hope Fellows is set up to equip and appeal to students from all walks of life with various callings, backgrounds, interests, and experiences. While we believe our program can meet anyone wherever they are at, we also foresee that our location and leadership will tend to attract graduates who are:
BUSINESS MINDED: Cincinnati is home to at least 10 fortune 500 companies. We are a prime location for those interested in pursuing a career in finance, marketing, consulting, sales, etc.
FAMILY ORIENTED: Cincinnati is a family city. Our Church is a family church. Both are not the ideal place for someone who plans to be a single professional for most or all of their life. Our program will most likely appeal to someone who sees marriage and parenting somewhere around the corner.
RELATIONAL: We are convinced that relationship, both to God & one another, matters most. We are people oriented and place deep value on intimate community. We appeal to those looking to really do life with others.
MISSIONAL: We embrace that our primary calling is to be agents of God's mission to the world. We are justice focused, kingdom oriented, and painfully aware that to be a Christian is to be a person of action. Those with a similar conviction will find themselves at home with us.

Second Presbyterian Church Fellows ProgramMemphis, Tennessee
The nine months in the Memphis Fellows program are spent studying what the Bible has to say about our mission as followers of Christ. The Fellows' four-day-a-week, paid internships, their volunteer service, and their host family living situations and personal relationships become the teaching ground for putting into practice that mission. Ultimately, the goal of the graduate level courses and roundtable discussions is to think and dream about how we, the church, and the world might be radically changed by the Gospel of Christ, and to discover the role to which each has been uniquely called in light of such possibilities.
The setting of Memphis, TN, offers Fellows a unique opportunity for serving, engaging, and transforming the culture for the Kingdom of Christ. Memphis has a long history of rich ethnic and cultural diversity; Asian, Middle Eastern, and Hispanic cultures blend into the dominant cultures of African-American and European-based traditions, making Memphis ripe with ministry opportunities. Second Presbyterian Church is actively involved in the Memphis community and encourages the Fellows to invest and engage along with them during their time here.
The city is also full of career opportunities. Memphis is home to several Fortune 500 corporations, including Autozone, FedEx, International Paper, and Service Master. Memphis also boasts a top-notch medical community with leading institutions such as St. Jude Children's Hospital and Research Center. From an artistic standpoint, Memphis has long been hailed for its music heritage. The city is considered the home of the Blues and Rock & Roll, and the home to both B.B. King and Elvis Presley.
