Mission and Vision
Our mission is to provide services and resources that will help members of Redeemer and the wider community engage with issues of faith and practice and deepen their understanding and experience of Christianity.
In carrying out our mission, we seek to:
Our Vision for Learning@Redeemer
Our vision is to create a framework for learning about Christianity that is intentional and self-sustaining. We consider it to be essential for all Christians to have a basic working knowledge of the Christian faith particularly in an age where most people are not Christian. Our ultimate goal is to expand the current Catechesis program by finding/developing (1) an introductory course aimed at “seekers” and (2) a curriculum for people who wish to deepen their Catechesis experience by learning about the Christian faith in a systematic way through the study of the core areas of Bible, theology, philosophy, comparative religion, spirituality, Church history, etc. To meet the objective of being self-sustaining, the seekers’ course and the core curriculum will be designed in a such a way that they can be offered on a regular basis by different leaders over a yearly cycle and/or through the internet.
We will also continue to offer ad hoc learning opportunities. These learning opportunities will be centred around into two closely-related core areas: spiritual formation (e.g., prayer, meditation, retreats, pilgrimages, Biblical and theological studies, study of the teachings of our fathers and mothers who can help us to deepen our journey to God) and radical discipleship (e.g. social justice, care for the environment, study of our fathers and mothers who have been leaders in promoting justice).
Finally, we wish to reach out to the larger community by sponsoring (or partnering with others to sponsor) larger-scale events (debates, lectures) in the downtown Toronto area on topics of current interest.
