The Kairos Fellowship provides you with the a context for transformation and growth (spiritual, intellectual, social, and moral) through challenging experiences, meaningful relationships, and an extended opportunity to live alongside and build relationships with the poor. Throughout the year you will be introduced new and challenging ways of thinking about Christian faith, connecting "who you are" to God's story, mission, justice, and call to live well together. You will also be challenged to learn how to live well and faithfully with others: Loving deeply demands openness to growth, facing our fears, receiving our identity in Christ, sacrifice, authentic friendship and worship together. Finally, at the core of the mission of the Kairos Fellowship is care for the city. This is a biblical mandate and it is here where God's redemptive purposes for creation will be realized. Jeremiah instructs the children of God to "seek the welfare of the city". In Isaiah 60 we encounter a vision of the transformed City. Together, Kairos Fellows seek the well-being of the city of Holland by fostering community development.
