Summer staff positions are now open! If you have at least two weeks and are looking for a great way to spend time at Holden, consider joining our summer staff team. Here's what Erik A., Development and Database Lead, has to say about working at Holden:

"For me, the best part has been the opportunity for self-realization and personal growth. There are so many chances to learn from others, and I'm realizing just how much a single person can influence a community."

Check out the Key Staffing Needs page for more information - we hope to see you in the Village!

Welcome to Holden Village

Over the course of 50 years now, Holden Village has been transformed from a copper mining town to a vibrant place of education, programming, and worship. It has been a rich journey of faith. Holden welcomes all people of good will who seek contemplation and community in the remote wilderness of the beautiful Cascade Mountains. We invite people of all ages to come and experience our rhythms, which inspire and equip travelers for a sustainable life of faith outside the Village. And we continue to listen to and reflect on our story and history as we seek to discover our place in God’s creative mission in our world.
