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.

Summer Registration Open

General registration for visits between May 1–October 31, 2019 is open now! The summer 2019 lineup of teaching faculty from around the world is now available on our Education page. As the issues around the world continue, we will continue the dialogue that we began together in 2018 at Holden. Gather together with a robust lineup of teaching faculty from all disciplines who will guide us through the challenging conversations, engaging with topics in ecology, science, theology, peacemaking, healing, global issues, the arts, and storytelling. We look forward to welcoming you to the Village.
