If you are seeking a joyous expression of the 'Good News' of our Lord, wish to find community, help form a church community in your locale, serve in lay ministry, or if you feel called to Holy Orders for sacramental ministry, we can assist you in discerning and realizing your vocation toward uniting all in the community of our Beloved Lord and God.

 All are welcome regardless of background, previous or lack of religious affiliation, race, gender, marital status, sexual orientation or any other consideration that causes division in the
Body of Christ.

"There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free person, there is not male and female; for all are one in Christ Jesus." (Galatians 3:28)

 We seek to heal the wounds of all who have been marginalized through living Jesus’ Great Commandment:

"This is my commandment: love one another as I have loved you." (John 15:12)

Our ministry is founded upon the intention demonstrated by Jesus as he read from the scroll of Isaiah in the synagogue:

"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring glad tidings to the poor, He has sent me to proclaim liberty to captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, and to proclaim a year acceptable to the Lord." (Luke 4:18) 

Our seminary's mission is to create 'teachers of teachers'. It is open to all serious students regardless of gender or marital status through online study, seminars, and retreats as well as an extensive mentoring and formation process.
