Essay Questions

Underground Seminary is for those who sense a call to be radical advocates for the world today. It is designed to be both a transformative education and an intimate, intensive, and intentional community experience. We believe that our socialization into the forces of empire requires a decolonizing of the self by following the way of Jesus. This can at times be painful, but is also a narrow path that can unleash great joy and liberation of spirit for those who complete our program. Please respond as honestly as possible so that our follow up conversation and mutual discernment may be fruitful.
