Institutes: Spiritual Formation Classes

Institutes are formation courses offered twice a year: in the Summer & Winter. In addition to learning and growing in our faith, Institutes are also a great way to connect with and meet other people at Jacob’s Well. These courses are open to the public as well.

A variety of themes are covered in these courses: spiritual formation, justice engagement, & courses focused on relational development. There are also offerings that are geared towards friendship and play (soccer leagues, cooking classes, running groups, etc.).

Look for course offerings and online signups during the months of May & December.
