Positioned in the United States' Pacific Northwest where creative, entrepreneurial energy is shaping the future, Seattle University's School of Theology and Ministry is known as a dynamic hub for conversations on the future of faith. With that future in mind, faith leaders from across the Pacific Northwest meet annually with school faculty and students through the school's State of the Church gathering each May. Participants collaborate on the future of Christianity in a pluralistic world, and focus together on how Gospel values can be embodied for the greater good. The State of the Church is a growing gathering of thought leaders and practitioners, ranging from Historic Protestant to Progressive Evangelical partners in faith.
