Come expand your theological imagination, grapple with practical problems, and continue a journey of reconciliation within a wider community at Duke Divinity School's Summer Institute for Reconciliation. At this annual event, the focus on transformation and reconciliation is grounded in a distinctively Christian vision and a framework that is richly practical, contextual, and theological.

Rooted in Duke Divinity School’s conviction that reconciliation lies at the center of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the institute draws on the strengths of a faculty of world-class scholars and practitioners. Since God’s ministry of reconciliation is entrusted to all Christians, the institute is designed to equip and inspire leaders who participate in God’s ministry of reconciliation as a journey of pain and hope. These leaders will cultivate a robust vision and practice of Christian reconciliation that is faithful to the scriptural witness, discerning of the times, and sensitive to the life of the church.

The institute centers on content with a biblical vision of reconciliation that inspires a movement of transformed communities and relationships. This formation of communities is nurtured by each other’s witness that Christ is strengthening us to the end and affirming us so that we do not “lack any spiritual gift” in our life together (1 Corinthians 1:4-9). As an integral part of the Divinity School and rooted in a Christian vision of God’s ministry of reconciliation, the institute aims to serve the academy, the church, and the world.

Registration is now open.
