Education & Dialogue


21theo is held weekly 7 – 8 pm on Wednesdays.

This program is designed for anyone interested in informally discussing scripture, theology, and religion in relation to modern culture, regardless of beliefs or background. Each week we’ll have a different topic for debate and dialogue. If you’re interested in these sorts of conversations, we’d love to have you!

If you have any questions about “21theo,” please contact our Student Ministers, Daniel Hickox-Young at or Bradley Fielding at
