Meet the 2018-2019 Nashville Fellows

The Nashville Fellows is a partner of several Nashville churches, including Christ Presbyterian, and exist to help recent college graduates explore what it means to live faithfully as believers in our homes, churches and workplaces across denominational lines. Each fall we welcome Nashville Fellows to serve in our Kids, Students and Families Ministry through the Fellows program.
