The Coracle Fellowship Application
Class of 2018

The Coracle Fellowship leads you through a year long process of discovery and deepening in community with others who are also seeking More in their relationship with God and in their redemptive engagement in the brokenness that surround us all. It is a program of “Spiritual Formation For Kingdom Action.” We offer it for your joy and freedom, and because the world needs more people who are alive and strong in God to powerfully be his presence wherever you go and wherever God leads you.

By end of the Coracle Fellowship our hope would be that you know God’s love more truly, understand Jesus more clearly, connect with God more easily, embrace your uniqueness more deeply, understand your vocations more confidently, grow spiritually, be oriented by hope, be better able to hear God’s voice, be better able to be used by God powerfully, trust God more radically, and live more fully with great joy.

The Coracle Fellowship program is woven around a framework of group retreats at Corhaven in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, about an hour and a half from northern Virginia, or in northern Virginia. It also includes key elements experienced individually and in group settings in your locale. These elements include those group retreats, individualized spiritual disciplines, recommended readings, spiritual direction, experience in a variety of spiritual disciplines, written reflections, prayer services, several Coracle Fellowship gatherings locally, a personal retreat at Corhaven, the opportunity to participate in other Coracle offerings over the course of the year, an experience of Kingdom service, a final reflection project, certificate of completion, and special gift. We encourage to continue to participate regularly in your home church.

We will provide a reading list, a retreat notebook, handouts and Scripture list, a specialized prayer book, and a journal, as well as individualized attention to your spiritual journey and growth.
