Help Us Equip the Next Generation of Christian Leaders
Over the past year, I've read a lot about a particular topic that I think is incredibly relevant to the mission of the Atlanta Fellows. It's been stated many times and in many ways, but here is the general thesis:
The great need of our day is not Christian leaders with talent or charisma but Christian leaders with character and integrity—Christians who have been deeply shaped and formed by the gospel of Jesus.
This is exactly what we aim to do time in the Atlanta Fellows. Over the course of nine months, we create an environment for Fellows to experience a kind of spiritual formation that will prepare them to be faithful leaders for the rest of their lives.
Now more than ever, our world needs gospel-centered leaders in the marketplace. We need men and women who have been shaped by gospel of Jesus to bring their faith to bear on their vocations—be it medicine, marketing, law, education, and everything in between.
As you plan your year-end giving, would you consider supporting the Atlanta City Fellows as we train up the next generation of gospel-centered leaders in the marketplace?
IMPORTANT: To make a donation, make sure to select "Atlanta City Fellows support" from the dropdown menu.
However you're connected to our Fellows community, we're grateful for you. Without your prayers, financial support, and engagement, we wouldn't be able to run this program.
So whether you give today or not, hear me say this: thank you.
Peace and blessings, Mark
Fellows Updates & Happenings
Micah 6:8 Conference
Early in November, our Fellows had an amazing time at the annual Micah 6:8 Conference exploring what it means to be just disciples following the just king and ushering in the just kingdom. Alongside all the Fellows programs around the country, they got to fellowship, play, and learn from some fantastic speakers.
City Church Youth Retreat
In October our Fellows led a group of City Church middle and high school students on a fall Youth Retreat! They had an epic weekend of hiking, climbing, paintballing, canoeing, and learning more about what it means to follow Jesus.
Walking Tour in Sweet Auburn
Back in October our Fellows (along with the Zacchaeus Fellows) had the incredible opportunity to go on a walking tour of the historic Sweet Auburn neighborhood, guided by Donell Woodson. Among many other things, we learned about what it means to be rooted in place, the difference between being a resident vs being a neighbor, and how this place shaped a King (MLK).
