“I see myself worshiping with people who desire healthy and difficult conversations, who hold one another accountable, and distribute and receive grace as we interact with each other. A commitment to improving our habits, working to preserve and improve our spaces for the generations to come, is paramount.”

If I have a ‘call story,’ this is it. In that moment, I realized that there was something about service that made profound sense to me, and the calm contentment it provided led me to explore the God leaders of the service trip had been talking about but that I had, until that point, ignored.”

“…my hope that through studying in Seminary I will find and avenue to care for God’s people [where I live]—not only pastorally, but also practically, even through something as simple as the shoes on their feet.”

“I see seminary as essential to my role in justice work.  The church is called to be a prophetic voice and an agent of uplift for those on the margins and yet Sunday morning is the most segregated hour in America.”

Faith³ Ministries

At the Center for Faith & Service, we seek to cultivate an integrated faith which is active in the Head, Heart and Hands. Thus, Faith3!

Faith Active in the Head

Our focus on re-envisioning theological education for a new age is at the core of our integrated view of faith.

Faith Active in the Heart

A heart filled with love of others, self, and God motivates us.

Faith Active in the Hands

Faith without actions is not faith at all (James 2:17). What we learn and how we love motivates the action of our lives.

Our programs focus on six areas of ministry.
