C.S. Lewis Institute - Charlotte

4004 Granite Circle
Fort Mill, SC  29707-4000

The C.S. Lewis Institute of Charlotte is being established in order to serve the greater Charlotte region. The 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 seeks to serve the Church of Jesus Christ in Charlotte 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:

  • The C.S. Lewis Fellows Program, an intensive mentoring/discipleship program that focuses on spiritual and theological growth.
  • 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.
