The C.S. Lewis Institute of Charlotte and the Carolinas is being established in order to serve the Charlotte and the Carolinas region of our nation. The Carolinas region is a national center of higher education (e.g., Davidson College, Duke University, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the UNC System, Wake Forest University), as well as business, industry, and a global center for Christian missions (e.g., BGEA, JARS, Samaritan’s Purse). The C.S. Lewis Institute of Charlotte and the Carolinas seeks to serve the Church of Jesus Christ in Charlotte and the Carolinas by developing disciples of all denominations and traditions who can articulate, defend and live faith in Christ in public and personal life; we are an extension of the C.S. Lewis Institute in Washington D.C., which began in 1976 and stresses discipleship of mind and the heart. The Institute works in partnership with local churches and ministries 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:

Lewis Institute of Charlotte and the Carolinas is currently in the development stages and is seeking like-minded and like-hearted men and women called to help establish a Fellows Program in the Carolinas by 2016. We are organizing an Advisory Board and are conducting a search for mentors. If you feel called to be a part of this discipleship movement, please contact us using the information below.
