Fairfax Fellows is a 12-month leadership development program for future pastors and church leaders at Fairfax Community Church located just outside Washington, DC. The fellowship is designed to equip you for growth in the ministry area of your choice with handson experience. You will also be coached by some of the best church leaders in the country. Whether your talents lie in worship arts, global outreach, or student ministries, we want to journey with you as you learn and grow in your calling.
Fellows work between 25-40 hours a week for their department under the supervision of a staff member and the Fellows Director. There are weekly classes that will require ongoing reading assignments as well as other projects. Peer learning is also important to us, so there are multiple opportunities for community amongst the Fellows class.
