Life, Faith and Writings of C.S. Lewis

The Inklings Fellowship

The C.S. Lewis Institute in Northeast Ohio 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 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 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.
