I love the summer. I love the sun. The heat. Riding my bike. The long days. When the days start to get a little shorter mid-August, I begin my mourning the promise that colder weather will be here before we know it.
But September creeping closer fills me with excitement as we get closer to welcoming a new class of Fellows. This week I got anunexpected surprise that made me even more excited about our new class of Fellows. An employer from last year sent me an email with a link to the blog on their website. One of last years Fellows, Stephen LaGue, who now works full-time at Straub Construction as a Project Superintendent had written a blog post for Straub reflecting on his time at Straub and on his experience as a Kansas City Fellow. His words, his reflections and introspection gave me renewed excitement about kicking off another year with a new class of Kansas City Fellows!
In his blog post Stephen wrote, “I believe the Kansas City Fellowship will not stop having an impact on who I am. I find myself unable to fully express my gratitude
for the opportunity to think so intentionally through what I believe and how that lines up so practically with the way I work, live, and play.”
The Kansas City Fellows is a nine month leadership and discipleship program, but our goal is for it to have a life long impact that shapes every single facet of our lives.
In just a couple weeks we start over with a new batch of Fellows. I’m excited for you to meet them.
