We are committed to an on-going formation process that begins with a solid theological foundation built on liberation and queer theologies designed as an umbrella term for transgressive action which erases boundaries.
Our approach to spiritual care is centered on people and their families (constructed or otherwise) delivered by ministers trained in clinical pastoral education through professional de-centered holistic means.
