Help your members develop a satisfying biblical response to cultural pressure points.
Christians across the nation increasingly find themselves confronted with an array of ideological and cultural challenges. Believers are hungry, maybe even desperate, for guidance from church leaders. The Colson Fellows Program is designed to provide the practical depth needed to answer today’s challenges, and our Church Affiliate Program is designed to bring the Fellows Program into local churches, led by trained members of their own staff and congregation.

A hallmark of Christian school education has been the promise to help students “develop a Christian worldview.” Yet almost all school leaders admit their worldview education is among the weakest programs in their curriculum.
One Christian education leader lamented, “We’ve been teaching Christian worldview from day one. Not only are we not doing it well, we are finally realizing we have been setting up our kids for failure. They are grossly unprepared to live a life of faithfulness to Christ in today’s world.”
The Colson Center is deeply committed to Christian educators, and those institutions that are educating the next generation from a consciously Christian perspective. Teachers and administrators, at deliberately Christian K-12 institutions and/or homeschoolers, receive a 50% scholarship to the Colson Fellows Program.
For those Christian educators and institutions who may not feel they are ready to take on the rigor and commitment of the Colson Fellows Program, the Colson Center also offers the Colson Educators Program, which is an ideal way to introduce your staff and institution to relevant worldview training and teaching resources.

“Christian school teachers with a robust, working Christian worldview are equipped to inspire their students to lead with their lives because they themselves have been inspired by God’s compelling vision for our world.”
“Serving as the Assistant Head of School in an independent Christian Academy, it is vital that I can effectively navigate today’s culture and re-shape it in a way that is pleasing to God. I’m excited to partner with other Colson Fellows to strengthen my own biblical knowledge and continue to develop a solid Christian worldview to assist me in working with future Christian leaders. “
“The Colson Fellows program was a great way to connect with other individuals who are interested in reading great books, growing in Christ, dialoguing about important Gospel-related matters, and seeking to be agents of change in the culture. The program is not for anyone who does not like to be challenged; but the rewards are worth the challenge. I would recommend the CF program to anyone who has interest in worldview thinking and how to respond to the challenges believers face “in this cultural moment” in a way that engages others with both the truths of Scripture and the grace, mercy and love found in Christ. I look forward to how God will use my participation in this program.”
“Often in Christian education we talk about worldview as a lens through which we see God’s creation and the world around us, and while it most certainly is that, it is so much more. A robust understanding of worldview is a deepened understanding of the whole story of Scripture and who I am as God’s created and called. . . The Colson Fellows program helped me ground and deepen this understanding and my purpose. Worldview is so much more than my perspective on Creation or knowing which Scripture supports a particular question or topic. It is who I am and how I live – in this culture and in this moment – I was created to be here.”
