Welcome to CSLI Chicago

Discover how discipleship is changing lives in Chicago.

Application period is closed for the 2022-23 CSLI-Chicago Fellows Program

The C.S. Lewis Institute in Chicago is designed to develop disciples who can articulate, defend, share and live faith in Christ in public and personal life. 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.

The Fellows Program

The CSLI Fellows Program offers a year of intensive training that leads to significant life-change. Unlike many discipleship programs, the Fellows program focuses on discipleship of both heart and mind. It involves Bible study, classic readings, lectures, group processing, personal spiritual mentoring and accountability — all in the context of a small group of like-minded believers. This year-long program is designed for those who want to live as fully committed disciples of Jesus Christ and make an impact for him in the world.
