The Schools of Sustainable Faith guide people to embrace the contemplative life. They help people honor sabbath and observe life-giving rhythms. They draw us toward healthy, embodied spiritual practices. They nurture self-awareness and vocational clarity. They launch kingdom enterprises.


The School of Mercy & Justice

Born out of a partnership with Vineyard School of Justice and the Winnipeg Centre Vineyard, the School of Mercy & Justice (SOMJ) is the second of our schools and is currently being piloted in two Canadian cities. We're working to cultivate a deep, vibrant, interior life with God for those engaged in the work of mercy and justice. The SOMJ is a school of spiritual formation for those desiring to lean into an active life while embodying a contemplative posture.
