The Faith & Justice Fellowship

A nine-month journey, from September to May, of theological formation for exploring the spiritual and public dimensions of Christian faith. Experience the Faith and Justice curriculum with a cohort of peers! In addition to network activities, cohorts typically meet 2x a month. 

→ More about Cohorts: Some cohorts meet online, and others follow a hybrid format with regular in-person meetings. All cohorts meet twice a month to facilitate in-depth learning and community building. Some are open to all. Others convene around particular identities (e.g., cohorts for women of color, Asian Americans, etc.). There is an option to indicate your cohort preference on the application form.

→ Application Deadlines: Early Bird (6/15); Regular (7/15)

You can do the fellowship from anywhere in the world. The core learning takes place through our online learning platform, while some cohorts meet fully online and others in person. 

We are committed to being a fellowship program that flourishes as a hybrid learning community.  

Since 2012, we have been involved in distance learning programs in partnership with a broad array of accredited educational institutions. Hundreds of students from over a dozen U.S. states have gone through our various programs.

There are several optional in-person gatherings throughout the year. They’re a great opportunity to build community and learn from our leaders and distinguished guest speakers and authors. For the 2024-25 fellowship year, our gatherings will be in Minneapolis (Sep 12-14, 2024) and the SF Bay Area (Jan 30-Feb 1, 2025).

Fellows receive discount registration and travel scholarships are available. 

Network Membership: 1+ hr(s)/wk
Network members engage the content at a flexible pace that works for them. In addition to two online webinar gatherings each month, there are online discussions and reading materials. Network members also receive invitations to our annual gatherings. 

Fellowship: 2-3 hrs/wk
In addition to network participation (above), fellows engage in two Zoom cohort meetings each month. 

Academic Track: 8-12 hrs/wk
Students on tºhe academic track should expect varying lengths of time for different individuals, depending on their learning styles. On average, participants should plan to spend 3-5 hours/wk reading + 1-2 hours in reflection/discussion each week + 4-5 hrs/wk on course assignments.

It is possible to do the work of the fellowship for advanced standing with credit at one of our partner seminaries:

Our students have gone on to study at each of the seminaries above as well as Fuller Theological Seminary, Luther Theological Seminary, Princeton Theological Seminary, and Wesley Theological Seminary. Please visit our Seminary page for more info and to apply for the Academic Track.
