The Worldview Fellows (previously known as the Worldview Initiative) spent their spring break hosting multiple conferences across Florida and Georgia. Eight Fellows, Ms. Julia Jones, and Mr. Jack Saunders (the Graduate Assistant and Director of the Department of Leadership and Culture, respectively), spent time with two homeschool groups and one private school discussing culture, faith, and how to live well as Christians in an increasingly polarized world.
This trip, the Fellows entered new territory by presenting individual keynote presentations they wrote themselves. Topics ranged from sexuality and identity to Christianity and the arts. Each Fellow spent several weeks crafting their keynote presentation to help students think biblically about a specific aspect of culture. Each conference also contained opportunities for break-out sessions and small group discussion, providing the relational aspect that makes the Fellows such a popular resource for schools and youth groups around the country.
When asked about the impact the Fellows program has had on his development in college, Gage Goddard (Christian Studies:Philosophy, ‘19) stated:
The Worldview Fellows has been a critical part of my time at Bryan. Through the organization I’ve learned so much about God, myself and the world. It’s given me opportunities to recognize and use the gifts God has given me and work with a diversely talented team. I’ve gained great friends from the Fellows and learned more of what it means to follow Jesus in community. I’m forever grateful to Jack for faithfully leading our team in pursuit of the Kingdom of God.
Congratulations to the Fellows on another successful spring break trip!
