First Impressions

What I’ve loved about the Fellows program so far are the conversations that have arisen, both topical and organic. So much of the program is structured; Dennis and the Fellows Ministry Team put a lot of time and effort into logistics and scheduling. And the fruits of that labor are awesome retreats, bible studies, and formative class time. What I have enjoyed about this structured time is that it creates opportunities to freely talk and share, focusing on the people in the room and what they have to say. When we are not doing something on the calendar, what I look forward to is the unstructured fellowship time we have together. For example, this past weekend a few of us spent almost an hour sharing embarrassing middle school stories. It can’t be planned and that is what is so fun about it. It was such a joy to open up and laugh with new friends.
