Our Partners

Are you director of an educational program or developer of an exciting curriculum? Would you like a venue to host a retreat or meeting?

Are you looking for a place of beauty with great facilities and hospitable staff as a location for your event?

Would your ministry be strengthened by partnering with a center that can support marketing, registration, program development and grant writing?

Would your offering benefit from association with a seminary of the Episcopal Church with deep ties to all 28 dioceses of Province IV, and the home of EfM's 37,000-member alumnae network?

If the answer is yes, contact Jim Goodmann, Associate Director of the programs center to discuss how to host your event at Sewanee or become a program of our center.  Email jgoodman@sewanee.edu with your inquiry today.

A few of our national partners include:

The Leadership Development Initiative (LDI)

The Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts’ Leadership Development Initiative has been a seminal partner in the development of the new curriculum offering to EfM graduates, The Essential Practices of Christian Disciples. Through their extensive community work, LDI has brought to the table many of their tried and true leadership development tools.

The Faith Food & Farm Network

This network of leaders within the Episcopal Church are endeavoring to quantify and map agriculture within the Episcopal Church in the United States and the broader Anglican Communion throughout the world. Through a Justice and Advocacy Fellowship grant and partnerships with Episcopal Relief and Development, the Beecken Center is working with a diverse group of hands-on poverty missioners, community gardeners, educators and activists toward a more God-oriented food system.


Called to Transformation

In partnership with Episcopal Relief and Development and the Office of Domestic Poverty of The Episcopal Church, the Beecken Center is participating in the development of a set of tools for Episcopal congregations to engage in asset-based community development. Through this process, groups of clergy and laypersons will discern, map and quantify their shared assets and develop plans for their use in the wider community.
