“SCUPE gave me a new theology and a new way of looking at faith and scriptures. It pointed me to all the scriptures that are about compassion, justice, inclusion, and rights of the poor. I left SCUPE multidimensional with a deeper, richer theology.”

Building leaders to move us from sentimentality to solidarity
SCUPE envisions a world in which people of faith and conscience engage in genuine advocacy. (Photo: Immigrant mother and son recently deported to border town of Nogales, Mexico, where SCUPE holds immersion training experiences.)
Building leaders to move us from extremism to pluralism
Around the globe, political events and religious extremism create an even greater need for religious leaders to embrace pluralism and mutual understanding. (Photo: Muslims and Christians march peacefully expressing their solidarity with victims of political violence in Syria.)
Building leaders to move us from superiority to companionship
Building a Contextual Theology begins with a willingness to engage directly with those whose experiences challenge our own. (Photo: Conducting a leadership seminar with members of interfaith clergy in Northeastern Nigeria)
Building leaders to move us from exclusivity to hospitality.
Whether it’s a wall in Israel/Palestine or at the U.S./Mexico Border, SCUPE’s Immersion experiences invite you to experience it first hand, to ask questions, to do a new thing – perhaps even to begin building bridges.
