IMT Fellows Program
The IMT Fellows program is a one-year intensive discipleship community designed to help you grow in your integration of faith and work with a strong biblical, spiritual, and theological foundation. Our hope is that this program will also help you become an agent in marketplace ministry and transformation whether in your church, business, and workplaces.
The Fellows group will be led by regional IMT Leaders and Dr. Paul Stevens and is for marketplace leaders and pastors who are interested in the integration of faith and work. This group is an intensive year of education, collective learning, and enrichment in the integration of faith and work. Each person will be a part of a cohort of 6-8 people in the same geographical area.
Dr. Paul Stevens says this about the Fellows group, “In sixty years of investment in training and teaching the integration of faith and life, specifically with faith and work, this is the most fruitful thing I have been involved in.”
There are over 50 graduates of 7 past Fellows groups, who are actively serving in churches, businesses, and non-profit organizations globally in USA, Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Taiwan, Germany, and South Korea.
