the gotham fellowship
The Gotham Fellowship is a nine-month learning community designed to broaden your understanding of and deepen your connection to God’s redemptive work by applying theology, spiritual practices, and cultural renewal to your work, your relationships, and New York City.
Each class includes fellows from diverse professional and personal backgrounds. Gotham provides three foundational elements needed for integration of faith and work: theological training, spiritual and personal development, and community formation.
We believe the Gotham Fellowship can have a transformative impact on every person at Redeemer West Side, regardless of their vocation. Through the program we explore how our everyday work plays a part in God’s greater call on our life, growing as a disciple, as well as seeing and pursuing human flourishing in our communities. As we all seek to love our neighbors and heal our city, both individually and as a church, Gotham opens our eyes to how we can view our daily work as a means of ministry and not just a way to pay the bills.
The Gotham Fellowship begins Labor Day Weekend and finishes the weekend before Memorial Day Weekend.
