Our vision is for God’s healing, reconciling, forgiving, and liberating love to become flesh and blood and move into the neighborhood
through the church.
Neighborhood Seminary is affordable, accessible, and intended to help God's church fully live its healing vocation in the world.
The foundational Neighborhood Seminary program is a two-year, non-degree, integrated course of learning which includes spiritual formation, coursework, and practical training in missional engagement. Faculty includes teams of scholars and missional practitioners. Missionally-trained spiritual directors facilitate spiritual formation. Local ministry practitioners are grounded in principles of asset-based community development and missional theology. In simple terms, our program helps lay people learn how to neighbor well, how to help their neighborhoods flourish, and how to foster life-giving community wherever they go. All in the spirit and manner of Jesus.
