Summer Fellows

Fellows-Header.jpg

During college, we begin to ask and answer life’s big questions: Who am I? What is a “good life”? What are my passions? What career should I pursue? How we answer these questions shapes the course of our life.

At All Saints, we believe there is no better place to ask and answer these questions than in the Church. Over the course of the summer, we hope to guide you as you explore these questions: working in a field of interest, dialoguing with community leaders, growing as a fellows community, and being shepherded by a local church.

By the end of the summer, we believe you’ll grow in your love for God, your love for one another, and your love for the World.

Program Overview

Three days a week, fellows work as summer interns in a given vocation (e.g. private equity, medicine, real estate, ministry, etc.). Fellows also receive theological training, participate in seminars with Christian scholars and community leaders, share life together, and enjoy one-on-one mentoring relationships with mature believers. Fellows will receive formational care through:

  • Host Church: The host church functions as the hub of the fellows program: providing oversight, scheduling activities, and weaving fellows into the life of the church body.
  • Job Host: The job host is either a business or church that hires the fellow as a paid summer intern.
  • Mentor: Each fellow is assigned a mentor. Mentors are members of the local church and employees of the fellow’s job host. Mentors will shepherd the fellow as they learn to integrate their faith with their vocation.

Dates

  • Application Deadline: Friday, November 1
  • May 28-August 9
  • 11 weeks with 1 week set aside for Reformed Youth Ministries (RYM) volunteering

Compensation

  • $1500 Fellows Stipend

Kevin Dunleavy, McGarrah Jessee

For over 20 years McGarrah Jessee has been in the business of creating completely-integrated, fully-formed campaigns in digital, social, and experiential platforms – along with television, radio, out-of-home, an, of course, taglines. On the account and strategy side, you'll be diving into what makes one client unique from others in that category and developing a focus line that sparks creative ideas. On the creative side, as a budding writer or art director, you'll be tasked with taking those focus points from account and strategy and turning them into something that makes someone pay attention and become a fan of the brand.
