Besides this website, what else does The Fellowship do?
The Members of The Fellowship serve the larger Christian community by sponsoring online meetings to pray for revival, through teaching and mentoring, and by a wide variety of resources for Christian growth and ministry. See the About Ailbe tab under the About tab on the website for more detailed explanations.
How does one become a Member of The Ailbe Community?
The Ailbe Community are those readers, students, and friends who journey with the Brothers of The Fellowship in seeking greater realization of the presence, promise, and power of the Kingdom of God. To join The Ailbe Community, simply register for our many teaching letters, by checking the boxes on the pop-up. You will receive the teaching letters you choose according to the mailing schedule for each one.
How is The Fellowship supported?
The Fellowship does not charge for services – downloads, teaching, mentoring, online courses, and so forth. We ask people to pay for books ordered from our online bookstore, and we depend on the Lord to move the hearts of those we serve – Members of The Ailbe Community – to share with us from the resources He has provided for them.
Who are the Brothers of The Fellowship of Ailbe?
The Brothers are men who have completed an orientation process, committed to the Ailbe Covenant and Rule of Discipline, and are working together to further the mission of The Fellowship as outlined here and on the About Ailbe page.
Is being a Brother in The Fellowship a full-time calling?
While it can be, most of our Brothers are actively engaged in ministry in local churches or other kinds of Christian ministry.
What is the doctrinal position of The Fellowship?
The Board and Members of The Fellowship subscribe the historic doctrinal confessions of the Church, as these are represented in and consistent with The Nicene Creed.
What does The Fellowship have to do with Celtic Christianity?
We look to the period of the Celtic Revival (ca. 430-800 AD) for insights, examples, and encouragement in our mission. The emphasis on Christ and the work of revival, renewal, and awakening that characterized this period provides many touchstones for our Brothers and Community as we pursue our mission together.
Is The Fellowship of Ailbe a ministry only for men?
We believe that a great need in the Church today is for men of vision, spiritual vitality, and long-term commitment. The special focus of our ministry is on reaching, building, and equipping men for life and service in the Kingdom of God. While our Brotherhood is restricted to men, and our revival prayer groups are organized for men, we are happy for men and women alike to participate in The Ailbe Community and use any or our resources.
How is The Fellowship of Ailbe governed?
A Board of Overseers watches over and evaluates all aspects of the life and work of The Fellowship. T. M. Moore is Principal of The Fellowship, and reports to the Board, which meets twice annually. As a ministry, The Fellowship reports annually to the Tennessee Secretary of State in fulfilling part of its charter.
