ALL SAINTS

All Saints is a training center, housed at Our Lord's Community Church, that offers seminary-level training in the areas of theological studies, spiritual formation, and leadership development. As an interdenominational and ecumenical center, we value the various ways God works to establish devoted followers of Jesus in Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox churches.

The driving vision of All Saints is based on the New Testament conviction that all the saints are to be equipped for ministry in the power of the Holy Spirit (Eph. 4:12).

 

Approach

As would be expected, the approach of All Saints courses will be biblical and substantive. In the language of Christian spirituality, the approach will be:

Mystical

The word mystical, commonly used in classic Christian theology and spirituality, suggests our union with God in Christ (Jn. 17:21; 1 Cor. 6:17). Accordingly, All Saints courses create contemplative space to experience the presence of God and deepen our relationship with Jesus and the Holy Spirit.


Communal

Transformation and growth occur in community. At All Saints, students will experience the presence of God together, joining sisters and brothers to “feast” around a table of rich conversation and friendship. Our approach to learning will center on dialogue that leads to discovery.


Missional

All Saints unites the contemplative and active lifestyles. Prayer and work are united endeavors. Each course involves personal integration that moves students to engage practically with God’s activity in their world.

MORE THAN A CLASS

 All Saints is not mere learning or equipping; it invites students into a journey with God.

 A journey into study, prayer, and transformation through intimacy with God.

Since theology is reflection on God in the presence of God, All Saints’ courses are designed for students to encounter God, hear the voice of God, and be transformed by the love of God.

A journey into the riches of our Christian roots and heritage.

As Jesus said, we are to bring out of the storerooms treasures of the kingdom old and new (Matt. 13:52). All Saints courses draw on the riches of the past as we look for what God is doing in the present.

A journey into life and leadership in communion with God.

Our aim in All Saints is to teach students how to develop sustainable spiritual practices that deepen communion with God, and to recognize how communion with God empowers leadership or influence in the church and world.
