The C.S. Lewis Institute Fellows Program in the D.C. Metro Area is designed to develop disciples who can articulate, defend and live faith in Christ in public and personal life. The basis of the program is to help mature believers go deeper in their faith through a year-long training in discipleship of heart and mind. Through solid lectures, readings, small group discussions, Bible study, and one-on-one mentoring, the Fellows Program has proven to provide a transformational experience for those who go through the year-long program.

Michael Ramsden, Director of the Oxford Center for Christian Apologetics, calls the program “the most effective discipleship program I’ve seen anywhere in the world.” Gail Thompson, a Christian counselor and former Fellow, calls it “the single most effective resource I’ve experienced in my 34 years of ministry”.
