The Fellows Program Naples is devoted to developing disciples who can articulate, defend, share and live faith in Christ in public and personal life. The Fellows Program in Naples is an extension of the C.S. Lewis Institute Fellows Program in Washington D.C. which began in 1976 and stresses discipleship of mind and the heart. 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.

·  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.

The C.S. Lewis Institute in Naples 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 Naples area. An Advisory Board is being organized, and a search for mentors is being conducted. If you feel called to be a part of this discipleship movement, please contact us using the information below. And, for more information, please see the CSLI Brochure
