“The Word became flesh and blood and moved into the neighborhood.” (John 1:14)
At Theological Horizons, we invite Emmanuel, God With Us, to move into our own “neighborhood” of academia---a space where people crave open, grace-filled speech and answers to the biggest questions.
Here at the intersection of faith, thought and life, Theological Horizons gathers students, scholars, church and community folks, and everyone in between. Every day we pursue the Truth together, giving thanks for Christ’s transformative presence among us.
We depend upon your generosity to sustain the work of Theological Horizons.

#1 the Merrick Family
As parents, we expected Theological Horizons to equip our three kids (UVa '15, '20 and '21) for a deeper consideration of faith. To our surprise, we ourselves have been equipped for those same spiritual conversations. Our Dallas book club uses Karen’s Vintage Saints & Sinners, along with her small group guides. As we explore the ways famous (and not so famous) Christians found faith and lived out their convictions, we study, argue, learn and grow.
Who knew that Theological Horizons--a ministry we support from 1000 miles away---would have a deep influence on us, too, beautifully enriching our own intellectual and spiritual lives?

Too often, our society requires us clothe ourselves in armor, afraid of the darts that someone will throw at us for holding opinions that may differ from theirs. Theological Horizons conversations are beautifully fearless. People are able to leave their hearts exposed, even when they talk with one another about important, even heavy topics.
I can adopt a heart-on-sleeve attitude with people in Theological Horizons, unafraid, because I know that my thoughts, however varying, will be received with nothing less than love and compassion. And I find this truly beautiful.
#3 Nadine Michel, Horizons Fellow Mentor
There’s an honesty to Theological Horizons conversations that I appreciate. People are vulnerable; they genuinely care about where you’re from, how you’re doing, and what your life experiences have been like. After talking to someone from Theological Horizons, I always find myself seeing patterns of God’s work in my life—prompted by the questions they’ve asked me, questions that made me reflect on a much deeper level. Community like this is rare and I truly cherish it.
#4 The Lazaro Family
What keeps me coming back to Theological Horizons both as a Board member and as a friend is the way they offer what our culture so desperately needs: conversations that cut below the surface, that speak to enduring truths about the Christian story, and that offer authentic spaces to be known and loved.
