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.

More spirituality »

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.


An engaging, relevant, provocative Reflection (or interview or Community Mic) is part of our Celebration gatherings every Sunday. We record the majority of our Reflections and post them on our weekly podcast, creatively called "Valley & Mountain Podcast" which you can listen to on your favorite podcast app or click the "Listen Now" button below.

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.
