Lifelong Learning

Education matters for ministry. Learning new ideas and encountering other leaders in ministry keeps you growing so you can help your community thrive. Education Beyond the Walls (EBW) is your partner in lifelong learning.



Focus on Justice

How should we live together? What can unite us in hope?


We offer workshops, both online and in person, to inspire and inform.

Collaborative Learning

Transformation happens over time in a community of peers working toward the same goal.

Non-Degree Courses

Try out seminary or just indulge your passion for learning—without the final!

Online Learning

Workshops, e-courses, certificate programs—we've got your online resources!
