Agora Fellowship

New Sessions Begin Each Fall

Leadership for the Common Good

In ancient Greek, the agora was a gathering place in the middle of a city that served as the center for commerce, politics, education, the arts, religion and civic life. What happened in the agora shaped the society as a whole. Not much has changed. Today the ideas and practices that flow from the academies, churches/temples/synagogues, businesses, houses of government and studios profoundly change and shape the society in which we live.

Purpose
The Agora Fellowship equips young professionals to integrate their Christian commitment and vocation enabling them to impact their professions for God’s kingdom and to be agents of cultural renewal.

Description
The Fellowship is a nine-month intensive program designed to provide young professionals with a solid base of theological, ethical and cultural understanding. Through weekly readings and discussions, monthly gatherings, and one-on-one mentoring with a mature person in their profession, Fellows will develop as influential leaders in their professions who can serve effectively as ambassadors for God’s kingdom and contribute to the common good locally, regionally, nationally and even internationally.

Requirements include:
· Complete weekly readings
· Attend and participate in weekly discussions over the readings
· Attend monthly gatherings to meet with guest speakers or go on excursions in and around the city of Lincoln
· Complete 2-3 written assessments over the course of the nine months
- Book fee of approximately $140

Who should apply?
Men and women, 25-35 years of age, working in fields including higher education, law, medicine, the sciences, media, arts, government and business/finance. The applicant should (1) be currently employed full-time, (2) have at least a year of working experience in his or her profession, (3) possess clear and strong Christian commitment and character and (4) desire to use his or her position of leadership to influence the culture for God’s kingdom and the common good.

We will do this by tapping into the richness of what God has revealed in his Word about communication and conflict resolution.”

Married Couples with Young Kids Connecting Series

January-April, 2018

Join us to get to know other couples in your life stage!
• An event series designed for married couples with kids ranging from nursery to 4th grade who are looking for connection with other couples in their same life phase
• 10-12 couples enjoy an event together once a month for four months

Couples with young children have unique challenges that make it tough to find time to fellowship. Yet life with little kids is a key stage where real adult fellowship is crucial to survival. There are tons of couples in this life stage in the halls at Berean and you may know very few, so we want to change that!

To help foster greater community, we’re hosting a series of events with the sole purpose of helping couples meet other couples. This series will consist of 4 events, 1 per month, to help you get to know more people at Lincoln Berean without having to make a long-term commitment. Childcare is available via sign-up for some of the events.

For dates and more information on how this works click here.

Space in each community is limited to the first 12 couples who sign up.
