My fellowship was both professionally and spiritually a life-changing experience. I learned how God gifted me, how to lead, and was given foundational ministry insights that have shaped the way I do ministry today. I was shown how to radically love God and love others with my whole life.Josh FalkeFormer Student Ministries Fellow
Fairfax’s Fellowship program helped develop my skills in production and tech. It provided valuable hands-on experience that allowed me to gain the confidence and skill set I needed to be successful in the church production field.Lindsey WillFormer Worship & Production Fellow
The Fairfax Fellows program was a unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience in my area of vocational interest. I was given lots of room both to grow and to explore different passions while working alongside full-time staff members. The skills I gained and the lessons I learned were invaluable in preparing me for a full-time role in church ministry. Thanks, Fairfax Fellows Program, for an amazing experience!Jeanetta GregoryFormer Worship Fellow
Being a Fellow has taught me how to take a vision or an idea for a ministry and to create and implement it practically. At Fairfax, you will have bosses who are extremely welcoming and understanding. It's an incredible opportunity to watch God provide for you and care for you as you pursue your calling.Tori JohnstoneFormer Fairfax Kids & Student Ministries Fellow
