Learning Community

At the Institute for Intellectual Formation & Skeptical Inquiry, our primary mission is to renew the “discipleship of scholarship”  in the learning community.

Renewing Your Mind

Our program is an educational resource for anyone—whether supporter, seeker, or skeptic—who recognizes the value of critical thought and desires to investigate questions at the interface of philosophy, theology, science, and relevant disciplines.

Searching for Answers

The Institute is also a learning environment that welcomes the skeptically-minded to join in an ongoing discourse on topics that emerge at the intersection of religious and secular domains of knowledge.
