The C. S. Lewis Institute maintains good working relationships with many churches in the Washington, D.C. area, recognizing the complementary nature of our work. Additionally, Institute programs have been developed and evaluated in consultation with pastors and other church leaders.
Our Pastors' Fellowship program, intended to Serve God's Servants, sponsors special gatherings during the year and additional resources are made available to assist pastors in their ministry---especially with theological and apologetic issues and growing disciples in their congregations.
Applicants to the C.S. Lewis Fellows Program must receive a recommendation from their pastors, and the pastors are invited to nominate candidates for the program each year. Conference speakers are selected in consultation with area pastors, and a number of the pastors with Ph.D. degrees offer seminars and mini-courses from time to time.
Meeting facilities for large conferences as well as small groups have been provided without cost to the Institute by several participating churches, and some provide direct financial support for Institute's work.
