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 a few 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.

Cost Overview

The cost of tuition for the SOMJ will be $900 USD during our pilot program. This represents about a 40% tuition reduction of the actual cost which is closer to $1600 USD.  We have generous support and partnerships and will continue to provide scholarships for as long as we are able to do so.
