Year Two Fellows Program
Year Two will build on Year One by providing additional insights and resources that will enable us to go deeper in order to run with endurance the race set before us and bear fruit for God. We will do this by exploring the holiness of God, the depth of our sin, and the hindrances to our spiritual growth (the world, the flesh and the devil). We will also discover how to appropriate God's grace more fully, be filled with the Holy Spirit, bear the fruit of the Spirit, resist the devil and engage the world for Christ in mission. This second year of the program then offers the opportunity to go "further up and further in" -- in the famous words of Aslan to the children C.S. Lewis's The Last Battle.
The program focuses on a different biblical theme each month, including:
The Grace of God
Knowing the Holiness of God
Knowing the Depth of Our Sin
Exploring the Seven Deadly Sins
Justification and Sanctification
The Indwelling Spirit and Authority in Spiritual Conflict
Orientation Toward Mission & Dependent Prayer
The Community of Believers
Theological Integration and Disenculturation

Mid-Career Professionals (ages 35-55)

In order to remove barriers to participation, the C.S. Lewis Institute does not use a fixed tuition structure. However, the Institute incurs substantial expense in offering the program. Similar programs cost $2,500-$3,000. Instead, we ask Fellows to make the Institute one of the ministries (after the church) that he or she supports on a regular basis.
Nothwithstanding the above, all Fellows must cover the cost of their participation in the weekend retreat. Fellows must also pay for the books and materials required for the program, which will cost approximately $325 for the year (if purchased new).
