Institutes & Speaking

Bartimaeus Institutes

The Bartimaeus Institute features interactive and in-depth study of scripture and social justice in the Ventura River Watershed of southern California, led by Ched Myers, Elaine Enns and friends.  Building capacity for both proclamation and practice, we study lectionary readings as they relate to particular themes of social justice.  More information can be found here on both upcoming and past Institutes.

BIO Bartimaeus Institute Online

BIO is a new package of courses on specific themes for online, self-paced study.  Each course includes webinars, YouTube videos, articles and more. More information can be found here on all BIO courses.
