Renovation of the Heart

Wednesdays, September 09 - December 09, 6:30PM - 8:00PM

The focus of this class is spiritual growth. In short, we aren't born again to stay the way we are. But how many times have we looked around us in dismay at the lack of spiritual maturity in our own lives and in the lives of those we love? The good news is that Jesus doesn't intend for that to be the case.

In this class we will use Dallas Willard's video series Renovation of the Heart to see and experience how God changes lives by a process that "brings every element of our being, working from the inside out, into harmony with the will of God or the kingdom of God."

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

Navigating Creativity

Sundays, September 27 - October 18, 9:00AM - 10:15AM

For creatives, makers, artists or those who are spouses or parents of them. We will wrestle with the question: How do you create when life gets in the way? What does it look like to create when you work a 9-5 job, seasons of life change, or tragedy strikes? We will discuss how to combat the urge to quit or set aside the gift God’s given you and what to do if you have already stopped creating. We will also look at what God says regarding living a worshipful, creative life; and explore together what it takes to faithfully live out the call to be creative.
