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 all ages to come and experience our rhythms, which inspire and equip travelers for a sustainable life of faith outside the Village.
