Cultivating emerging leaders to transform the Triangle through expressing the gospel in all of life
WHY Triangle Fellowship?
How might a church, committed to the renewal of its cities, invest in the next generation to impact the Triangle’s culture and marketplace with the fullness of the Gospel?
Starting this Fall, Chapel Hill Bible Church will launch a new endeavor to equip our young adults for gospel leadership in the world. The Triangle Fellowship is an intensive, top tier training program that engenders commitment from its participants and our congregation. Through the Triangle Fellowship we provide the theological, spiritual, and relational foundations required for meaningful and sustainable integration of faith and work.
A contextualized adaptation of the Gotham Fellowship from Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, our Fellowship integrates three primary elements to further the social, cultural, and spiritual renewal of Triangle:
At the core of our program is the commitment to consider how the gospel impacts every area of life. We develop a worldview that draws from the deep resources of the Christian tradition and is sufficiently robust to engage the diverse and complex culture of the Triangle.
SPIRITUAL AND PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT
The Fellowship fosters personal, spiritual, and professional development through daily devotions and relationships with pastoral leaders and mentors from the congregation.
The Fellowship is a community of peers, from diverse backgrounds and vocations, who are committed to each others’ spiritual growth and calling to serve the common good of the city.
PROGRAM DETAILS AND COMMITMENT
The Triangle Fellowship is a nine-month program (similar to an Executive Education program) for cohorts of 12-14 adults who are employed full-time in the Triangle and have at least two years of working experience. Our ideal class comprises 50% men and 50% women between the ages of 25-39 working in varied fields including law, finance, education, government, non-profit, design, medicine, and the arts.
The Fellowship begins Labor Day Weekend and finishes Memorial Day Weekend. During these nine months, the Fellows meet two hours a week to discuss the extensive weekly reading of major texts from various eras of church history. Daily devotionals unite the group through guided scriptural and devotional readings. Monthly Saturday gatherings provide in-depth training and city excursions. Three retreats (Labor Day, mid-winter and Memorial Day weekends) focus on personal reflection and spiritual formation.
The Fellowship tuition fee helps offset program expenses. The fee is $1900 for CHBC members and for those in process of CHBC membership during the application period. For all other applicants the fee is $2150. Financial aid is available for all applicants and applications for financial aid will be sent out after final acceptance letters are sent.
