Fellowships

If you have seen what the Hendricks Center is up to (whether you are a student or not) and have thought, “I’d just like to be a part of that,” you are not alone. There have been so many people, we have actually created a program for it! Our fellowship is a voluntary partnership between yourself and the Center in which we agree to work together on a mutually agreed-upon project. From learning podcasting, establishing leadership programs, or brainstorming global leadership training, our Fellows have learned some fascinating skills and created some beautiful opportunities for ministry. If you like to choose your own adventure, this is the path for you!

Associateships

This is an opportunity for persons with advanced degrees (or commensurate life and professional experience) to become a part of our staff for an agreed upon amount of time in order that we might mutually benefit one another with our areas of expertise and networks. If you are a professor, university staff member, or business professional interested in the work of the Center, we would love to become acquainted and see how we might be able to impact one another.
