I have often told people that if The Seattle School had existed when I was doing my graduate studies I would have been there in a heartbeat. I deeply resonate with the school’s mission. Rarely have I experienced a learning community more deeply committed to the idea that all truth is God’s truth, regardless of the discipline and to take this idea further by intentionally bringing different disciplines into relationship. We have three primary degree programs: Counseling Psychology, Divinity, and Theology & Culture.
The mission of The Seattle School is to train people to be competent in the study of text, soul, and culture in order to serve God and neighbor through transforming relationships.
Some of the courses of study in which I get to serve as a guide include (though not exhaustive, this list includes active courses and classes I have taught):
- Leadership in the New Parish Certificate, a practitioners think-tank.
- Culture, Identity, & Locatedness
- Mission as Faithful Presence
- Life Together 1: Ancient-Future Church & Worship
- Life Together 2: Relational Leadership & Pastoral Ethics
- Crafting Transformational Moments
- Introduction to the Hermeneuticial Task: The Art of Reading Beyond the Page
- MDiv Practicum 2 & 3
- Mission in a Global Context
- Theories of Culture
- Essential Community
- Toward a Relational Theology
- The Kingdom of God & the New Sciences
- The Body of Christ: Rediscovering the Local Parish as Embodied Witness
