Applying to Become a Lewis Fellow

The Lewis Center for Church Leadership is currently accepting applications from those who wish to be considered for membership in the 2020 – 2021 Cohort of Lewis Fellows.

Please complete these steps to apply.

Step One: Review Program Information

Before beginning the application process, please review the following documents with information about the Lewis Fellows program.

Make sure that you fit the eligibility requirements for program applicants, that you understand the program expenses and costs, and that you are able to participate fully during the scheduled meeting times. If you have questions about your eligibility, please contact Dr. Ann A. Michel, Associate Director, Lewis Center for Church Leadership.

Step Two: Download Application Questions and Assemble Necessary Information

The application is submitted online. However, once you begin the online application you need to complete it in one sitting. So before proceeding to the online application, you should download this PDF version of the Lewis Fellows 2020 Application. This will allow you to familiarize yourself with the questions and assemble information related to your educational and ministerial history, names and telephone numbers of potential references, and information about your ministry setting.

Step Three: Complete the Online Application

Proceed to the online application only when you have assembled all the necessary information and are ready to submit your application. This application needs to be completed in one sitting. You do not have the option of saving your work once you begin. If you leave the application before completing it you will need to start over. Therefore, you are encouraged to set aside approximately 30–45 minutes to complete the application. Click to begin your application.

Applications are due no later than April 20, 2020.

Those accepted into the program will be notified by May 15, 2020.
