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.

Creative Liberation

A launchpad for loving outward: inspiring and equipping people to become agents of the Spirit’s liberating, peace-making, creative work in the world.

More justice »

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.

A Second Site

V&M - Ravenna is our emerging new site in North Seattle

We are launching another site for Valley & Mountain! This started when the people of Ravenna United Methodist Church, a historic congregation at the end of its life cycle, made the bold choice to leave a legacy by giving us their building to create something new. We renamed it the Ravenna Collaboratory and are turning the space into a community hub for the arts, spirituality and social change.

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

  • Celebrations: Creative services with music, co-created sermons, and community. Childcare provided!
  • Theology Pub / Conversations on the Absurd: Talk philosophy, theology, justice, and mystery over tasty beverages
  • Small Groups: Build community and grow spiritually in community.

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.
