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.
Holden is recruiting potential teaching faculty for 2017 and 2018. Our teaching will focus on the themes of Re-Formation; reforming our relationship to God, to the earth and to each other. We seek candidates with expertise in the Arts, Theology and Philosophy, Environmental and Social Sciences, Social Justice issues, and Peacemaking. The online submission form and more information can be found at holdenvillage.org/educa. Submissions will be accepted until November 1, 2016.

Each guest and staff bed in the Village is covered with a handmade quilt made by Holdenites near and far. Every quilt in the Village tells a story and is a piece of Holden history in its own right. Holden is currently seeking donations of Twin Extra-Long quilts to blanket our newly-donated Twin Extra-Long beds. Find out more on the Quilts page.
