Southern Teachers is the oldest teacher recruitment company in America. We work with over 600 schools around the South, helping them to find talented teachers and administrators. Our services for candidates are free.

That is to say, you don’t necessarily need an education degree or teacher certification to get a job. Want a good job? A great life? Be a Teacher!

Brazos Fellows seeks to prepare women and men for lives of mature Christian discipleship. Through a variety of educational experiences – a course of study, guided learning, guest lectures, and retreats – fellows gain a theological framework for their future work, study, and ministry. Fellows commit to a Rule of Life and participate individually and communally in ancient Christian practices. Together these disciplines aim at personal and communal growth in Christ-likeness. Through prayer, mentoring, and professional coaching, fellows will grow in awareness of their strengths and unique design in order to discern God’s various calls on their lives. In addition to joining the life of Christ Church, fellows eat, pray, and discuss together as a cohort, all the while seeking the flourishing of transformative friendships and genuine community.
