Agora Fellowship

New Semester Begins September 2015

Leadership for the Common Good

In ancient Greek, the agora was a gathering place in the middle of a city that served as the center for commerce, politics, education, the arts, religion, and civic life. What happened in the agora shaped the society as a whole. Not much has changed. Today the ideas and practices that flow from the academies, churches/temples/synagogues, businesses, houses of government, and studios profoundly change and shape the society in which we live.

Purpose
The Fellowship equips young professionals to integrate their Christian commitment and vocation enabling them to impact their professions for God’s kingdom and to be agents of cultural renewal.

Description
The Fellowship is a nine-month intensive program designed to provide young professionals with a solid base of theological, ethical, and cultural understanding. Through weekly readings and discussions, monthly gatherings, and one-on-one mentoring with a mature person in their profession, Fellows will develop as influential leaders in their professions who can serve effectively as ambassadors for God’s kingdom and contribute to the common good locally, regionally, nationally, and even internationally.

Content
The Fellowship addresses six key questions. During their nine-months, Fellows will wrestle with:
· What is God doing? (Theology)
· What am I to be doing? (Calling)
· For what purpose am I to be doing it? (Goal)
· What environment am I doing it in? (Culture)
· What can I accomplish? (Influence)
· How am I to be doing it? (Ethics)

Who should apply?
Men and women, 25-35 years of age, working in fields including higher education, law, medicine, the sciences, media, arts, government, and business/finance. The applicant should (1) be currently employed full-time, (2) have at least a year of working experience in his or her profession, (3) possess clear and strong Christian commitment and character, and (4) desire to use his or her position of leadership to influence the culture for God’s kingdom and the common good.

Fellowship Requirements
· Complete weekly readings
· Attend and participate in weekly discussions over the readings
· Attend monthly gatherings to meet with guest speakers or go on excursions in and around the city of Lincoln
· Complete 2-3 written assessments over the course of the nine months

Benefits
· Build a theological foundation in work, culture, and faith
· Become aware of the cultural and civic needs unique to the Lincoln community
· Develop close relationships with other young Christian professionals committed to influencing the culture through their vocations
· Opportunities for follow-up training and resources after completion of the program

Cost
Annual book fee of approximately $200

Questions? Contact Shereen at lbctuesmorning@gmail.com.
Choose from one of these three electives:

[1] Kingdom People: Sermon on the Mount // Teacher: Renee Meyer
Jesus is the Messiah, the long awaited King of the Hebrew people. Much like His first followers, we still wonder today what it means to be part of that Kingdom. The Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7) is Jesus’ explanation. Join us as we discover how to live out those values as Kingdom people here on earth.
Cost: $10 (notebook included)
Homework: weekly + group study in class

[2] Like a Rock: 1 & 2 Peter // Teacher: Kathy Anderson

Come delve into Peter’s final message to the saints and uncover the truth that turned this volatile fisherman into a rock-solid leader. We’ll learn together what it takes to stand firm in a world of suffering, persecution and persuasive lies.
Cost: $10 (notebook included)
Homework: weekly + group study in class

[3] Moms Uplifting Moms (MUMs) // Facilitator: Laurie Harms
