Educational Values

Cultural Context

We promote ecumenical and interfaith dialogue and action across a spectrum of faith traditions. We facilitate relationships among city, suburban and rural congregations and colleagues.

Spiritual Formation

We seek to develop an ever-expanding consciousness of the way spiritual and social realities affect each other. We seek to foster justice at local, national and global levels, beginning with accountability to ourselves, our churches and to those who are marginalized.

Community Ministry

We seek to connect academic theory with life practice. We ground ministerial vision and social action in our life of prayer, encouraging ongoing reflection regarding self, community, and world concerns in relationship to God.

Religious Heritage

We seek to utilize educational methods that are flexible, transformational, and uniquely relevant to the needs of our students and our world. We encourage members of our learning community to evaluate and utilize insights from broad spectrums of faith, culture and life experience.
