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).
Celebrating the fact that God is on the move across a spectrum of churches in our city and region, All Saints seeks to strengthen local churches in biblical, practical, sustainable ways. Through ongoing programs of robust study, prayer, and action, All Saints empowers Christians to be contemplative reformers, to follow Jesus in the mystical and missional life.
Further, a tectonic shift is occurring in the landscape of theological, spiritual, and leadership training. Even the best traditional seminaries have been struggling to survive for the past thirty years. New forms and expressions of theological and leadership education are emerging. In this new landscape, the local church has the opportunity to serve as the primary vehicle for theological education and transformation. All Saints is at the forefront of these significant changes. Providing education and training that are affordable, rooted in the local church, and focused on practical wisdom, All Saints equips Christians at the grass-roots level.
All Saints offers a variety of learning experiences. At the core of All Saints is a nine-month journey that includes three courses, each with a practicum that strengthens students’ calling, gifts, and ministry. The first track to be offered is for the Certificate in Theological Studies.
