Abundant Life Fellows
The Abundant Life Fellows Program is a two-year program that starts in August. There is a track for college students as well as a track for young adults not currently enrolled in school. The program is designed to equip young adults to engage their faith holistically through the practical theology of Christian Community Development. During these two years Fellows will build deep and formative relationships with each other and the Abundant Life family. These relationships and experiences will have a life-long impact on the Fellows and equip them for leadership in the church and workplace.Learn more
