W/ is a collective of faith and community leaders who are exploring and leading in theologically progressive spaces. Many come from an evangelical heritage. Most have, or are in the process of, deconstructing and reconstructing their Christian faith. W/ is a place for relationship building, collaboration and critical thinking. W/ values relationship and belonging above same beliefs – in fact, we think a hallmark of progressive theology is spaciousness to come to different conclusions and hold relationship as paramount.
W/ primarily offers opportunities to connect and collaborate through events hosted throughout the year. W/ events create space for you to meet others, refresh your soul through time away and spiritual practices, and opportunity to have your ideas strengthened and challenged through dialogue and teaching from a diverse body of thinkers, teachers, artists and leaders.
W/ believes the fullest expression of God is seen in the diversity of God’s creation. The church’s history of exclusion is a sin we must acknowledge so that we may choose otherwise and redeem the role of Church in our society. W/ is committed to embodying the value of diversity in all areas of leadership and engagement.
