Contribute to a movement that brings hope and healing
Join the call to be light-bringers and truth-tellers, to defend wholeness and foster healing connections in a broken culture.
A Sacred Mission
The Seattle School is redefining the theological education experience—building capacity to think, empathize, and practice, even in moments of deep pain.
Our students uncover the text of their own narratives to make meaning and find hope even in tragedy. This goes much deeper than practice. It is holistic formation; it’s personhood. We are fostering stronger connections to God, but also shaping better husbands, mothers, siblings, pastors, entrepreneurs, and therapists.
We know that we must tell our tragedies in order to tell our redemption. We’re not afraid of sorrow, because joy can’t exist without it.
Responding to Culture in Flux
We are activated practitioners, responding to an activated society—continually pushing towards the reign of God in the world. We respond to what is happening in culture and equip students to engage effectively. When the world is complacent, we are a voice of disruption, and when the world is fragmented and upended, we are a steady anchor.
Our alumni have the unique capacity to work with those who have experienced profound trauma—war veterans, abuse survivors, those who have suffered or witnessed atrocities. They carry out the sacred work of restoration in lives and relationships.
Foster Redemption & Healing
The Allender Center at The Seattle School is committed to boldly engaging the impact of trauma and abuse on the human heart. Dr. Dan Allender, the Teaching Staff, and Facilitator Teams work collaboratively to foster redemption and healing in individuals, families, and communities by helping them tell their stories with awareness and integrity while also training leaders and professionals to engage the stories of others with courage, artistry, and care.
Join a Movement of Meaning
This is more than a degree. Our students join a movement—alongside 1,200 alumni who are actively shaping culture in their contexts. This massive transformation is possible thanks to allies, friends, and advocates who cheer them on and roll up their sleeves to help make the work happen.
Our donors are champions of wisdom and hope. They love the gospel and want to extend light into a dark, broken world.
