Leadership Fellows Training

The training program of the Kennedy Center for Christian Leadership is rich, detailed, and intensive. It is not for the faint of heart. With 18 full days of training, spaced over three weeks, each training week is full, rewarding, and demanding. Attendance is mandatory at all scheduled sessions.

Leadership Fellows arrive on Sunday each week for a special reception and dinner. Classes begin Monday morning and continue throughout the day—sometimes well into the evening, when we have special dinner speakers and Capitol Hill events. The week-long session concludes at 12 noon on Saturday.
