Our Fellows Graduated! 🎉🎉🎉
Atlanta Fellows community and friends!
We had an amazing time celebrating our inaugural class of Atlanta Fellows this past Saturday at City Church Eastside! In case you couldn't make it, click here to check out the replay.
10:57 - Mark's opening remarks (how the little town of Macon led to the creation of the Atlanta Fellows)
20:42 - Each Fellow shares a quick "story of grace"
58:55 - Mark's closing remarks (what it's been like to launch a Fellows program in a pandemic and why he's dubbed this founding class the "Kintsugi Class")
1:09:30 - The one-of-a-kind gifts we gave the Atlanta Fellows
1:11:22 - Fellows photo slideshow from the year
1:16:43 - Pastor Scott Armstrong's Commissioning Prayer
During the ceremony, the Fellows and I had the opportunity to share what the Lord has done in our hearts and lives through this experience. There were plenty of laughs and more than a few tears (especially from me). But as I said on Saturday, the real beauty of a Fellows program is that everyone involved (host families, mentors, committee members, service partners, etc.) is blessed and transformed in some way. I'm so grateful we got to hear some of those stories and praise God's faithfulness together.
Regardless of how you are involved in the program, I want to say thank you. Thank you for giving your time, talent, wisdom, or treasure to this program. Without you, there would be no Atlanta Fellows program, and we would not have experienced the gospel transformation we saw and heard on Saturday.
And that's why we want to continue to do this program. We want to bring more Fellows here year after year, and equip them to become gospel-centered leaders in their vocations, their churches, and their cities. But we need your financial support to make it happen. So please, if this program has blessed you in some way, would you prayerfully consider partnering with us as we raise up the next generation of gospel-centered leaders in the marketplace, church, and city?
