We understand the integration of faith and social action are part of the spiritual formation process.

We are a vibrant and inclusive community of learners and spiritual people on many paths. We value this diversity and the integration of intellectual, spiritual, social, and vocational learning to better equip people for ministry in a variety of settings.
