    Trinity (Wall Street) Institute 2018: Values in Action

    Virginia Theological Seminary is hosting a regional partner site for the 2018 Trinity Institute, “Values in Action,” being broadcast from Trinity Wall Street in New York City. We will livestream the plenary sessions and participate our own facilitated small groups on-site at VTS.

    We all want to create a better world, and that requires action and connection. Discerning shared values is crucial to forming powerful partnerships and moving forward with courageous intention. Explore how you and your community can set a collaborative course at Values in Action, a Trinity Institute conference designed to help you get grounded and connected so you can get going.

    Learn how to use the power of community to form strategic alliances. Once we’ve connected with others at the deepest level of our values, we can make progress beyond belief.

    The event is being sponsored by the Lifetime Theological Education, Multicultural Ministries, and the Church and Community Engagement Office.
