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 Fellows Program

The CSLI Fellows Program offers a year of intensive training that leads to significant life-change.

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.
