Teaching Faculty


Holden Village invites educational faculty from around the globe to spend time at Holden to teach on the topics of visual and performing arts, the sciences, theology, diversity, inclusion and racial justice, global and domestic topics, and more. Our educational mission is central to our work as a remote wilderness retreat center rooted in faith.

Holden offers educational programs year-round, but our most robust programming occurs during the summer months.

Summer 2022 marks our 60th anniversary of summer programming in the Village, in which we will explore the theme of Jubilee. The biblical concept of Jubilee presents a vision for abundant life for all people, including the most vulnerable. The effects of jubilee are many:

  • Economic: cessation of debts; a community in which no one can be perpetually enslaved or excessively wealthy
  • Environmental: stewardship of the land
  • Communal: restoration of relationships

Teaching Faculty will engage this concept of Jubilee from a wide array of topics and perspectives. We hope you will join the conversation!
