HoneyRock Fellows Program

HoneyRock Fellows exists to develop whole Christian disciples and effective ministry leaders through a yearlong program of vocational discernment and outdoor ministry experience.


About the HoneyRock Fellows Program

The HoneyRock fellows are a group of college graduates seeking personal growth, ministry training, leadership development and vocational discernment. Fellows generally share a common interest in outdoor ministry and desire to grow and develop individually as they serve and lead others in the outdoor context.

Fellows are employed at HoneyRock for over eight months and are paid for working 29 weeks. Fellows pay a program fee that covers the cost of various program elements including a wilderness trip, retreat weekends, community activities and events, Christian Camp and Conference Association (CCCA) sectional conference attendance, various strengths assessments, and a 4-credit course from the Wheaton College Graduate School.

Graduate School Credit

You can earn graduate school credit while you work! All Fellows are required to complete a special student application for Wheaton College Graduate School. This will allow you to complete the four credit hours of course work, two in the fall and two in the spring. You must complete this before you arrive at HoneyRock in September.
