Main Street Fellowship

Revive your work, on earth as it is in heaven.
Offered in collaboration with TrueWorks,
Main Street Fellowship forms leaders with all of Christ, for all of life, for the good of Houston and the world.

Think Biblically

Develop a theologically-informed imagination regarding all aspects of life, with a special emphasis on the place we spend most of our time—the workplace.

Practice the Way of Jesus

Among a community of cross-vocational peers, implement daily practices and spiritual rhythms that align your whole life to be purposed for others, driven by the love of Jesus.

Renew Work and Culture

Love your work back to what it was intended to be: an act of glorious worship.

Core Objectives

  • We form men and women who lead from a core Christian commitment and worldview.
  • We empower Christian men and women to be the Church, the hope of the world.
  • We help men and women integrate their Christian faith with all of life.
  • We believe work is worship, and we help Christian men and women make it so.

Here’s What You Get

It’s a lot of fun. Trust us.

Weekly Classes

This year’s Main Street Fellowship is our first For The City edition, where FPC moves beyond the church walls and sets up in Bitty & Beau’s Coffee Shop in Rice Village.

Beginning Sept 16 until mid-May 2025, we will meet every Monday from 6:30–8 AM for hands-on teaching and community learning experiences, diving headfirst into applicable, Gospel-rich course content:

The Story: The Gospel and Other Tales

The Characters: God and Us

The Call: Vocational Work

The Acts: The Gospel and Houston

The End: Liturgies that Point to Glory

Three Retreats

We retreat overnight in the hill country of Texas to go deep on content and community formation.

Sept 6–7, 2024

Jan 10–11, 2025
Tales of Brokeness

May 17, 2025
Leading from Your Core

These retreats provide meaningful opportunities to get away from the buzz of the busy city, invest in community, and worship God together.

We also spend time discussing the most important concepts in the course, which provide the paradigms that lead to our personal and group transformation over the 9-month program.

*Attending these retreats is a requirement.

Formation Projects

In addition to daily devotional content designed to shape and re-shape your heart and prayer life, we also assign practical projects which integrate our weekly course content and communal discussions. These projects include:

The Biblical Narrative Project

The Self-Counseling Project

The Work-Site Visit Project

The Cultural Renewal Project

These projects are designed to help apply and “make-practical” the course content and material so you can instantiate the needed rhythms of change and formation required in your life.
