The dream of School of Theology is that every participant might begin to know that God is better than they ever imagined and that they are included and embraced in his abundant goodness. We believe this is best realized as we consider everything through who Jesus is.
Our goal is to provide an environment where, collectively, the Spirit of God will draw out the creativity given to each of us. Our week together is set amidst spectacular natural surroundings, which provides the opportunity to explore questions of life and faith with a depth that is hard to match in the rhythms of daily life. By encouraging genuine spiritual dialogue within a safe community of kindred learners we are stimulated to think critically and act humbly.
Nationally recognized writers, speakers, and teachers join and lead us to examine familiar paradigms and integrate different perspectives so that theology is no longer a “closed subject” that produces a dogmatic anemic spirituality but instead develops our spirits as it unfolds into a vibrant life within us.
Personal access to these men and women is unparalleled. Some of the best conversations often take place beyond the classroom around a meal or on an extended walk.
The ability to integrate ideas on the academic, vocational, and personal levels is greatly enhanced by the presence of a trusted friend. We suggest participants invite someone with whom they can process what they are learning.
