Our vision is to become a Spirit-led movement
inward, outward, and onward together…

Deep Listening

A school for exploring inward: developing spiritually mature, caring, courageous leaders in the way of Jesus.

Radical Hospitality

A community sharing life together: creating a culture of deep listening, healing, celebration, and trust where the ability to belong is integrated with the right to be different.

…an organism progressing onward: evolving as a hospitable, relevant, self-sustaining, and generative movement that reflects God’s radically inclusive love.

Second Site: V&M - Ravenna

our emerging second location in North Seattle

We are launching another site for Valley & Mountain! This new community shares the same mission, values, theology, and even the same name. The new church emphasizes the arts as a path to collective liberation and mystical experience of the Divine. 

Why Ravenna? In late 2017, the good people of Ravenna United Methodist Church, an historic and aging congregation, made the bold choice to leave a legacy by transferring their building to us so the work we have been doing can germinate in a second location! We renamed the building the Ravenna Collaboratory and are turning the space into a community hub for the arts, spirituality and social change.

Gatherings at V&M - Ravenna (5751 33rd Ave NE, Seattle)

  • Celebrations: Monthly services on weekday evenings. (When the time feels right, we envision transitioning weekly Sunday morning Celebrations.)
  • MAKERS: Monthly interactive, art-based gathering to explore the intersection of creativity and spirituality. 
  • Taize: Monthly candelight, contemplative services.
  • See the Calendar of Events below for more details

The Collab

The home of V&M in the heart of Hillman City, Seattle.

In June 2013, V&M partnered with Community Arts Create to open the Hillman City Collaboratorya social change incubator.  It is the focal point of our efforts to create a center for creative liberation in our city and it is also where we gather for Celebrations on Sundays.

Located in the heart of Hillman City, a diverse and historic neighborhood in south Seattle, the Collaboratory is currently home to over 24 different social change organizations, an art gallery, a learning kitchen, an urban farm, a homeless drop-in center, and a lot more.
