Preparing Citizens to Lead

Civic Seminary

The Citizen University Civic Seminary prepares everyday citizens to lead their communities toward a renewed sense of shared civic power and moral purpose. Seminarians explore the ethical foundations of their beliefs (and those of others), learn to craft and deliver catalytic sermons that draw on both the current day and the civic traditions of our society, and ultimately create a Civic Saturday Program where they live and work.

Applications for the 2019 Class are now open, click “Apply” below for more!

We launched the Civic Seminary to meet the rising demand for Civic Saturday gatherings in other places, and to allow citizen leaders to shape a Civic Saturday practice in their own communities. Since completing the program, our inaugural class of Civic Seminarians have held Civic Saturdays in cities across the country, from St. Petersburg, FL to Georgetown, TX to the south side of Chicago and everywhere in between.

The 2019 class of Civic Seminary Fellows will be selected in November 2018 for one of our four cohorts. Fellows will attend one Seminary Training in Seattle, WA before leading Civic Saturdays in their own communities.

2019 Applications are now open, and can be found by clicking “Apply”.
