Newbigin House of Studies

Newbigin House develops leaders through theological education, focused on faith, peace, and justice.

Mission: Newbigin House is an ecumenical study center developing leaders through theological education. By training and mentoring a new generation of missional leaders, in partnership with churches and seminaries, we are committed to renewing a vision for Christian ministry in a rapidly changing world. Our staff, along with senior and teaching fellows, bring rich experience in church and non-profit work, social justice ministry, vocational discipleship, counseling and pastoral care.

JOIN US for a two-part webinar series: “Is Queerness a White Invention?” | August 13 + 27, 12-1pm PST

This class will examine the relationship between queerness and whiteness in Western culture and history, including alternative models of queer-being by drawing on queer traditions beyond European contexts. This class is taught by Sarah Ngu, a writer who was born in Borneo and based in Brooklyn, NY. They have spoken and written about queer Asian and non-white histories, and also serve as the executive director of Forefront NYC Church.

A Year of Faith, Peace, and Justice: The Newbigin Fellowship

We've made some BIG changes to the Newbigin Fellowship, which now combines our various programs under one core curriculum with three different tracks: (1) laity track, (2) academic track, and (3) pastors track.

We also have a renewed and clarified focus on theological reflection that addresses the most pressing challenges of our day. Watch the video below to learn more about the "new" Newbigin Fellowship as a contemplative year of faith, peace, and justice. Applications for the 2020-21 program are due July 31!

The Fellows program is a nine-month journey (September-May) of theological formation for exploring the spiritual, public, and missional dimensions of the Christian life. The program equips you to:

1. Embody the way of Jesus;
2. The call to peace;
3. The work of justice.

As always, participants in our academic track have the option of advanced standing at one of our partner seminaries. In addition, the program is now mostly virtual for the next year, with face-to-face regional and cohort gatherings where possible. We're especially excited that thanks to our experience in distance learning, you can do the fellowship from anywhere in the world.

Not least, this change enables us to reduce the cost of the program by nearly two-thirds, making it more affordable than ever. To learn more, visit https://newbiginhouse.org/fellows

JOIN US for a three-part webinar series, The Sins of Christianity | June 18 (tomorrow!), July 2, July 16

What does faithfulness look like amid a world reeling from racial injustice? It should look different depending on one’s place in the world, as the response of Christians who have long enjoyed privilege in American society will not be the same as for those who have been marginalized and persecuted. This class, with Newbigin House of Studies Director of Theological Education Peter Choi, argues for repentance for the privileged as it explores the racial sins of Christianity in America. Learn more and register: https://threefriendships.org/2020/06/the-sins-of-christianity/

Rather than searching for ways to be part of the solution, what would it look like for Christians who have enjoyed privilege of various sorts to examine the ways we have been part of the problem? Learn more about the class, The Sins of Christianity, with Peter Choi here… https://threefriendships.org/2020/06/the-sins-of-christianity/

A sobering reminder of why Black Lives Matter is so important for our time. At Newbigin House, we are listening, learning, and repenting. Thank you Chanequa Walker-Barnes for these words.

Ministry for the Common Good

We warmly invite you to join special guests Willie Jennings, Stephanie Spellers, Jessica Wong, and faculty members of Newbigin House for our “Ministry for the Common Good” conference, January 15-16, 2020. Previously called “A Colloquy for Pastors,” we hope this new broader focus will make space for more people—anyone involved in ministry as well as sensing a call to ministry.

For our fourth annual gathering, we will focus on a variety of topics such as the relationship between race and theology in America, the messy history of Christian missions, and—in spite of our troubled past—the church’s ongoing call to build a better future. Along the way, we will be asking big questions like… What does Christian service for the common good look like? How can Christians love the world as God loved the world? What do we need to know and do in order to seek peace in our contexts?

We hope you’ll join us as we consider these important questions together! https://newbiginhouse.org/ministry-for-the-common-good/
