Know God. Know yourself. Know others. Be transformed. Start well.

Now in its 28th year, the Falls Church Fellows program equips recent college graduates to live seamless lives of faith in all areas: family, vocation, community, discipleship, and service, for the sake of others and the glory of God.

Applications for the Class of 2023-2024 Open in September!

Applications are now closed but will re-open in September.

A Year of Full Immersion

The Fellows Program at The Falls Church Anglican is a nine-month Christian leadership development program for recent college graduates. The program was designed for those who want to wrestle with how their faith influences and shapes their life and work. Fellows will focus on vocational growth through a paid internship, practical discipleship experiences, graduate studies, service opportunities, and family living, all in the context of a community of believers.

The Experience

The Fellows Program isn’t a mountain-top experience, from which you come down and try to “apply” what you’ve learned in the “real” world. Instead, fellows experience their first year after college just like anyone else – in “the real world” but supported by committed leaders, by the community of fellows, and by program elements that embolden fellows to live their Christian faith seamlessly.

The Internship

The Fellows Program isn’t a gap year before joining the workforce, it’s an immersive first step into applying your faith in the workforce. Fellows work three days per week in a paid internship in their chosen field. Our fellows have interned with a wide variety of employers, including church youth ministry, non-profits, Capitol Hill offices, and local businesses. Fellows don’t just start out in their profession. Fellows start well!

The Location

The fellows have the unique opportunity to experience the dynamic aspects of the program within the historic context of our nation’s capital. Washington, D.C., is an exciting place to live, bustling with the energy of government, media, and business. History comes alive, the Smithsonian Museums make art and science accessible, and fellows can enjoy a wide array of local and international cuisine.

The FCF Program gave me the space to pursue deep personal and spiritual growth while being surrounded by a community that both challenges and encourages. It gave me the teachings and the tools to explore my vocation while practicing Christlikeness in the workplace. Through fellows I learned the value of community, the strength of the local church, and the beauty that can result in our merging our calling to work with our calling to follow the Lord. – Marie Price, Class of ’21

Become a Falls Church Fellow

Putting a class of fellows together is an art more than a science. We want a group that will work and learn well together. Learning from and sharing with one another is a key component of community in the Falls Church Fellows Program. We like to see candidates from a wide range of universities and personal backgrounds.

Meet The Fellows

As the founding Fellows program, we have 27 years of rich history in filling classes with young adults eager to enter into Christian community where faith is applied in vocation, discipleship, academics, fellowship, and family. Above all, we desire to love and exalt Jesus Christ with both heart and mind.

Donations to the program are always greatly appreciated.
