The C.S. Lewis Institute Atlanta is devoted to developing disciples who will articulate, defend, and live their faith in Christ in personal and public life. The C.S. Lewis Institute Atlanta is an extension of the C.S. Lewis Institute in Washington D.C. which began in 1976 and stresses discipleship of heart and mind. The Institute works in partnership with local churches to help believers glorify God by becoming mature disciples of Jesus Christ who impact the spheres of influence to which God has called them. This discipleship occurs through:

  • The C.S.Lewis Fellows Program, an intensive mentoring/discipleship program that focuses on spiritual and theological growth. Please watch "Atlanta Fellows Testimony Video" below to learn more.
  • Apologetics and Discipleship Seminars, through which world respected authors and speakers instruct and encourage participants about important aspects of life in the Kingdom of God.
  • Knowing & Doing, a quarterly publication with challenging articles, interviews, and reviews designed to nurture discipleship of heart and mind.
  • Informal gatherings, where the important issues of the day and of personal life can be explored from the perspective of biblical orthodoxy.
