Are you considering joining the fellows program?

Join us in Chicago February 14-16. 

Taking the jump to move to Chicago for the next two years of your life is a big decision – and we want you to be able to discern well if joining the fellows program is right for you.  

At CCI, we know we are a unique culture. We’re fully Cru, and fully in the Anglican church. We’re in a diverse urban context, and we’re living in radical community with six other fellows. We’re passionate about personal growth, and we work really hard on mission to college students. These realities are hard to capture on a website or even in a conversation. We believe it’s vital for you to experience who we are before you decide to join us.

We also want to get to know you. We set the bar high for graduating seniors. We’re looking to take seven fellows who are team players, hungry to learn, ready to serve, and on fire for the Lord Jesus. We want to be able to spend time with you for our own discernment. In fact, this weekend is so important for us that it’s hard for us to imagine accepting anyone to be a fellow without actually having come and been with us.

We’d love for you to do anything you can to get here – because we won’t have another weekend quite like this. But, if there is an unchangeable conflict, please email Erin Walker at [email protected] to see if another visit can be scheduled.

Registration deadline is February 1
