Become a CS Lewis Institute Fellow

The application period for the upcoming 2020-21 Fellows Program is now open!


Do you desire a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and other believers?

Do you want to experience the power of a transformed life?


The C.S. Lewis Fellows Program is a year-long discipleship program designed for believers who are highly motivated to grow deeper in their knowledge of and obedience to Jesus Christ, who desire for God to use them more effectively in the work of His Kingdom.

The Fellows Program’s unique approach to discipleship focuses on the integration of heart and mind and is designed to help Fellows become more like Jesus Christ. A combination of focused Bible study, dynamic teachers, classic writers, experienced mentors, effective discipleship groups and active response to the Word and the Spirit helps believers mature in their ability to articulate, share, defend and, above all, joyfully live out their faith in public and personal life.


Year One Applications: You may complete the application using the web form (preferred) or the downloadable PDF (fill out by hand). If using the PDF, please print, then mail or fax the completed form to the Institute via the information listed below. Once your application has been submitted, please have your pastor and one non-related person who knows you well submit a Fellows Program Recommendation Form and return it directly to the Institute either via the web form or the information provided below.

The C.S. Lewis Institute in Dallas is devoted to developing disciples who can articulate, defend, share 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.
  • Fred Durham is the Director of the C.S. Lewis Institute in Dallas, Texas. He has been a pastor for over 40 years serving in the North Texas Conference of the United Methodist Church. During those years he has served as a District Superintendent, supervising over 60 churches and as the Assistant to the Bishop. Always active in community affairss, Fred has served as mayor of two of the cities where he has pastored, Winnsboro, TX and Trenton, TX.  He is also the founder and president of Alighieri Press, a ministry of publishing, speaking, and event sponsorship.
