Newbigin House of Studies

Newbigin House seeks the good of the city by developing leaders through theological education.

Located in the most secular city in the United States - San Francisco - Newbigin features a faculty of scholar-pastors experienced in navigating the terrain of church planting in urban centers, church revitalization, social justice and mercy, lay theological training, pastoral care and counseling, and more. Our programs cater to the diverse range of needs within the church today. The Newbigin House of Studies exists in partnership with Western Theological Seminary (Michigan) and City Church of San Francisco, both of the Reformed Church in America. City Church is an urban congregation of more than 1500 regular attendees existing in multiple sites and reaching the diverse population of San Francisco. It was planted in 1997 by Fred Harrell.

Mission: Spiritual renewal will only happen when “local congregations renounce an introverted concern for their own life, and recognize that they exist for the sake of those who are not members, as sign, instrument and foretaste of God's redeeming grace for the whole life of society." Lesslie Newbigin

A wonderful evening listening to the music of Dave Brubeck and learning about his life and work from historian Stephen Crist.

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/
