Faculty Fellowships

Every year, Opus selects an interdisciplinary group of faculty to study the literature in several areas including theology of work and vocational discernment processes among millennials and to integrate their learning into their teaching and mentoring.


These year-long fellowships, available for 5 full-time faculty members each year, provide funded release time and conference and seminar experiences that help faculty link their own fields with vocation in their pedagogy.

Goals include:

  • Apply theology of work, discernment of calling, vocationally oriented spiritual formation and relevant experiential educational principles to departmental curricula, programs, and ethos
  • Generate excellent classroom vocation- and purpose-exploration experiences for students
  • Serve as Opus advocates, ambassadors, and liaisons to represented academic departments

Summary of Fellowship components:

  • Participate in the Opus fellows seminar (once a month through the academic year)
  • Design and implement a fellowship development plan (during the '17-'18 academic year)
  • Read seminar resources and participate in seminar discussions
  • Attend the Redeemer Center for Faith and Work conference as a cohort (Nov. 10-13)


  • Funded spring course release OR a 4.5k stipend as an alternative
  • Fully funded travel and expenses to the Redeemer Center for Faith and Work conference
  • Each fellow will receive a customized faith and vocation resource library
