The Way of Jesus in the World of Today


Each year the Academy grants fellowships to twelve outstanding young scholars, professionals, and artists to live and study at Osprey Point. The Academy offers a rigorous curriculum of theology and cultural studies in the context of community to challenge Fellows to live their whole lives as an answer to God's call. Each Fellow develops a personal project for the year and is partnered with an experienced mentor.


The vision of the Academy is to cultivate a generation of faithful leaders who are together able to thoughtfully engage the most critical issues faced by our culture.
