CULTURAL ENGAGEMENT INITIATIVES
Soul Care Initiative
The Denver Seminary Soul Care Initiative (SCI) exists to extend Jesus’ invitation, “Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest,” to the pastors and faith leaders of the Front Range. SCI serves as an avenue for personal spiritual renewal to help sustain local pastoral leaders in the midst of demanding daily life and ministry.
The Kaleo Project
Over the last decade, researchers have tracked a rapid increase among Americans who claim no religious affiliation. In the last five years alone, the unaffiliated—popularly known as “the nones”—have increased from just over 15% to 20% of all U.S. adults. Where can the Millennial Nones be found in the Denver area? How can churches in the Denver area call out to them, inviting them into life-giving relationships? This is the focus and the mission of the Kaleo Project.
Vernon Grounds Institute of Public Ethics
The Vernon Grounds Institute of Public Ethics provides environments and resources to educate, facilitate and train Seminary students, members of Christian leadership and the Christian community as a whole in the area of social ethics.

The Lewis Center is an educational resource for the greater Denver area that seeks to train and equip believers, proclaim the truth of Christianity to unbelievers, and engage culture for the redemptive cause of Christ.
