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.
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.
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.
· 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

Discovering God’s Will
Sundays, March 25 - May 13, 10:45AM - 12:00PM
Young couples are in a stage of life where they are making some of the most important decisions of their lives! Who should be my life partner? What should be my life’s work or vocation? How should I chose a graduate school program? How many children should we have? How should we spend our limited finances? In this eight week class we will survey scriptural truth and consider views of some contemporary Christian writers (Robinson, MacArthur, Swindoll, Sweeting, Stanley, Friesen, etc.) to understand a biblical view of decision making and the Will of God. Haddon Robinson, renowned Bible teacher, speaker, and author said, “The Bible does not provide a map for life—only a compass. But through study, you will discover how the compass can guide you over the bewildering terrain.” This class is offered to young couples from the recent premarital classes and other young married couples.
Cost: $10/couple (Book costs included in registration fee)

Married Couples with Young Kids Connecting Series
**Sorry, this event is full.**
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.

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