Are you a passionate storyteller looking to expand your gifts for the glory of God? Christianity Today (CT) is offering its first ever NextGen Accelerator program for young creatives like you!


This 6-month experience will begin in August 2024 and conclude in February 2025. Participants will engage in two 4-day in-person immersions at the start and conclusion of the program with bi-monthly virtual meetings throughout. All travel costs are included, along with a program stipend.

The program revolves around four focal points:

Editorial: The Stories that Bind Our Convictions

Pastoral: The Care that Connects Our Soul

Artistic: The Craft that Shapes Our Calling

Influential: The Passion that Drives Our Impact

By the conclusion of the experience, fellows will be exposed to mentorship, dialogue, research, and problem solving to better serve within their current contexts or prepare them for vibrant careers as part of any storytelling environment. CT will also benefit from the proximity to talented storytellers for future engagement.


10-12 diverse evangelical storytellers, Christian influencers, marketplace leaders, or media specialists between the ages of 18-26. College students, recent graduates, graduate students, seminarians, and early career applicants are welcome. Open to creatives from all genres:

• Artists
• Writers
• Editors
• Videographers
• Poets
• Creative designers
• Pastors/church leaders


Apply to the fellowship today using this form. Application deadline is May 31, 2024 and the portal will close at midnight CST. Questions may be submitted to Hannah Glad at

Grow your gifts to become exemplary storytellers, for such a time as this!
