Fourth Fellows

Deeply Rooted

Fourth Fellows is a nine-month Christian discipleship and leadership program for young adults that have recently completed college or graduate school. The program establishes foundational rhythms so that young adults can start their professional lives well—equipped to both embrace the church and engage the world.

We help to ground you in the faith, find your place, get launched on a faithful trajectory, and engage the culture.

Full-Immersion

Fourth Fellows is a nine-month Christian leadership and discipleship program for recent college graduates. We provide the opportunity to work, study, serve and connect – to build a foundational pattern that will help individuals glorify God for the rest of their lives. We do this through multiple program elements – a paid internship, graduate study at Reformed Theological Seminary, mentoring relationships, service opportunities, and friendship with other Fellows.

The Experience

Fellows are selected and immersed in a nine-month experience that integrates professional work, graduate-level seminary study, discipleship, service, and time with a host family, other Fellows, and the broader Fourth community. The goal of the program is to cultivate a desire for wholeness in all aspects of a Christian’s life.
