Fellows Program

“ . . . because what’s gained in this journey with their peers–both in faith and as leaders–essentially is unavailable anywhere else.”

Bob Buford, Halftime Institute Founder


What Distinguishes the Fellows Program?

Among all postgraduate programs and professional resources, The Fellows Program stands out for its blend of faith and leading-edge instruction, for personal time with thought leaders and top authors, one-on-one executive guidance, and for peer exchange at the highest levels.

Fellows Program Features

1.  Peer collaboration. Halftime Fellows are elite marketplace achievers poised to know and pursue God’s call for their second half of life. Given their love of Christ and a common desire for significance and surrender, peer relationships are one of the program’s chief benefits.

2.  “Head” and “heart” curricula. Each Fellow will design a personal spiritual growth plan, a mission statement and an action plan–this is the Heart Journey. The Head Journey, guides Fellows through concepts, readings, speakers, discussions, coaching and best practices. The paths come together in exposure to thought leaders and practitioners of leading-edge and global work in education, poverty, microfinance, orphan and widow care, healthcare & medicine, food & clean water, and social justice.

3.  Leading thinkers and practitioners. Jim Collins, Bob Buford, Ken Blanchard & Margie Blanchard and similarly renowned thinkers, speakers and influencers bring both newsmaking insights and rare personal interaction.  As do leaders in faith-based organizations from all over the world such as Rich Stearns, Chris Crane, Peter Greer and many others.

4.  Coaching by a Halftime Institute Certified Coach. Each Fellow has both regular meetings and 24/7 access to our best, most seasoned Halftime coaches—a personal, one-on-one “head and heart” guide through the full year.

5.  Executive internships.  Each Fellow designs and schedules a real-world internship or internship series in select organizations that serve Jesus’ agenda in the marketplace, in Christian non-profit, in social entrepreneurial projects, or in the local church or a para-church ministry.

6.  Personal & Exclusive Events. The Halftime Fellows year is a sequence of group meetings, events, and discussions; one-on-one coaching; a couples retreat; specialized webinars and teleconferences; readings and interaction with leading speakers and authors; and, as your ideas and decisions take shape, introductions and hands-on experience to help you explore your areas of interest.
