Mission Statement

The Walker Center is a vibrant ecumenical residential and conference center, which works in partnership with diverse religious communities to promote a faith-based approach to contemporary international mission work, cross-cultural understanding, and conflict resolution.

Description

The Walker Center is truly a place "Where the World Meets," a center of hospitality enabling all who visit to explore and develop their gifts of mission. All programs reflect a faith-based approach to mission work, and emphasize cross-cultural understanding and social justice efforts. Our activities include providing: 1. low-cost housing for international students of theology and their families; 2. overnight or one-day conference and retreat space for ecumenical organizations, youth groups, and churches concerned about justice, peace, and community transformation; 3. global mission resources, programming, and volunteer opportunities; 4. workshops and educational resources for cross-cultural understanding, conflict resolution, and anti-racism activities; 5. temporary housing for international delegations; 6. hands-on mission experiences in rural villages in Honduras to promote sustainable community development; and 7. overnight hospitality to clergy, church members, families of individuals who are in area hospitals, and other people/families in need.
