Welcome to Holden Village
Over the course of 50 years, Holden Village has been transformed from a copper mining town to a vibrant place of education, programming, and worship. Holden invites people of goodwill of all ages to come and experience our rhythms, which inspire and equip travelers for a sustainable life of faith outside the Village.
Holden Village welcomes and embraces people of all races, ethnicities, religious backgrounds, gender identities, sexual orientations, and abilities. We strive to overcome learned prejudices and develop relationships across difference. We actively seek liberation and transformation through education, relationship, and engagement with the Village’s core values.

Join the Teaching Faculty
Holden Village seeks candidates to serve as teaching faculty and guest musicians! Summer 2022 marks our 60th anniversary of summer programming in the Village, in which we will explore the theme of Jubilee. The program will include visual and performing arts, the sciences, theology, diversity, inclusion and racial justice, global and domestic topics, and more. Guest Musicians assist in leading worship and enlivening the community life through music.
Now is the time to listen and learn to the lived experience of Black, Indigenous and People of Color. It is also time for Holden to examine its history of privilege. Holden Village is an Educational Retreat Center with ties to the whitest denomination in the US, serving an audience that has been predominantly white. It is Holden's responsibility to bear witness to what is happening in the world, to elevate the voices of Black and Brown people, to change the course of inequities, and to break down structural prejudice in all forms where it exists, within Holden and in white and Christian U.S. culture.
Holden Village Welcomes New Executive Directors
