The Foundation’s ministerial study seminars—week long, guided reading, intense study, mutual support, deep friendships, year after year—are the heart of our program.

We have more than thirty-five topical reading lists—with selections from Augustine, Calvin, Edwards, Barth, Niebuhr, Leith, and many others—from which each seminar chooses a topic to study each year.

Bibliographies may be found here



Moreover, the Foundation reimburses participants for most or all expenses for room, board, and travel for the seminars.

Membership is by application and invitation only. For more information and to apply, please email the executive director, Dr. James C. Goodloe IV, at
