The Praxis Forum is a Westar community committed to bridging the gap between the academic study of religion and the on-the-ground experience of religion and spirituality in contemporary culture. We seek to support continued research and scholarship on the origins, practice, and impact of the Christian tradition as well as foster the faith and spiritual growth of religious communities.

We are religious leaders with training in church, arts, chaplaincy, non-profit management, social justice advocacy, religious scholarship, the development of new faith communities and social service work. 


As a community of leaders, who seek to support and strengthen one another’s work, we develop events, workshops, and programming that raise religious literacy and strengthens spiritual traditions.
