Throughout the program, Fellows meet in smaller, conversational environments called Community & Culture events. These relational learning gatherings happen over shared meals and focus on the leaders, industries, and issues of Denver. We want Fellows to grow in vision for their own influence at work while learning to know, love, and serve the Denver Metro area.
5280 Fellowship Staff will provide overall leadership, direction, and teaching for the program. Each staff member brings a strong background of academic excellence, diverse work experience, and commitment to the local church to the role. Fellows will interact with staff extensively at the Saturday sessions and weekend retreats.
Brian is the COO of Denver Institute for Faith & Work and directs the 5280 Fellowship. With a background in biology, Brian knows how central a theology of work is to both a rich professional life and a flourishing society. He holds an M.Div. from Denver Seminary, a M.Ed. in exercise physiology from the University of Texas, and a B.A. in physiology and B.S. in exercise science from the University of California at Davis. With 13 years in pastoral ministry and 4 years as faculty at Denver Seminary, Brian is one of Denver’s leading voices on theology of work and vocation.
Throughout the session, Fellows will learn from seasoned experts in a wide variety of sectors about key issues in the city and distinct industries. City leaders will meet with small groups of Fellows to share about their career, workplace, and faith in the context of their leadership. A select group of leaders will also share during Saturday teaching sessions and weekend retreats. Below are several examples of the industries and leaders that Fellows have interacted with.
