Uptown Fellows Program

The Fellows program is a Christian leadership development program for recent college graduates who seek to build Christ's kingdom in their future vocation.


Eddie Adesodun

Not sure what you want to do after you graduate?

Join the Uptown Fellows and receive life-changing spiritual and leadership development to lay the foundation for your future in your church, your family, your community and your vocation. Become the next generation of Christian leaders and learn what it means to be a servant leader to create a better world.

But don’t just take our word for it. Hear from former fellow, Eddie Adesodun, about what the program did for him.


Church of the Incarnation

O God, our times are in your hand. In the midst of uncertainty lead us by your never-failing grace as we seek to be agents of healing and hope. Walk with us through difficult times; watch over us in danger; and give to us a spirit of love and compassion for those who suffer and mourn. And finally remind us that you have promised never to leave us so that even in the valley of the shadow of death your love may be felt, through Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN.

A special thank you to the men and women who served the parishioners of St. Dunstan's Parish in Houston.

Ms. Charlene's home. She is a 70-yr-old parishioner at St. Dunstan's in Houston. Our fellows and parishioners gutted her house, sorted all debris in required piles, and prayed for the recovery of a place she has called home for 46 years. #hurricaneharvey #hurricaneharveyrelief

Fellows take on a mission trip to Belize 2017!

1. I am so grateful for the opportunity to fall in love with God's creation and learn about the hearts and lives of His children in Belize, all the while deepening relationships with fellow parishioners through our love for Christ and service.
-Jordan Jowers

2. Going to belize gave me the time to build relationships with many other parishioners which makes Incarnation feel even more like home.
-Helen Cumbee Corey

3. Traveling to Belize was the perfect combination of helping others see Christ and helping us see Christ in our everyday life.
-Meredith Johnson

Ellen Phillips works as a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) intern for the City of Garland's Water Department. She helps maintain an accurate map and database of the city's water network. Ellen has learned a lot about the inner workings of the built environment and the amount of work that goes into delivering an essential part of our lives - water.

"I am thankful for my internship because it gives me excellent entry-level GIS experience and teaches me to think about all aspects of community-building - even the 'underground' parts. Though unsure of which specific industry to enter, I can certainly see a future career that involves mapping and communities." -Ellen


The happiest of birthdays to this book loving, bread making, theology consuming fellow! We sure do love you! 🎉❤️

"Through prayer and meditation, through seeking help from each other and from helpful books, they try to draw near any way they can to God.... They sometimes make serious slips. They sometimes make miraculous gains. They laugh a lot. Once in a while they cry." ~ Frederick Buechner, "Telling Secrets"

"There is good work to be done by every son of Adam and every daughter of Eve all over the face of the earth. There are flowers to be grown, songs to be sung, bread to be baked, justice to be done, mercy to be shown, beauty to be created, good stories to be told, houses to be built, technologies to be developed, fields to farm, and children to educate." ~ Steve Garber, "Visions of Vocation: Common Grace for the Common Good."
