Reconciliation House (Woodland House)

SF House

The Reconciliation House is located on campus behind the Bittner Residence.


This residence is the home to 6 students and one live-in advisor.

The Reconciliation House is a living-learning residence that provides space where broad-based public dialogue and debate on diverse and difficult to discuss issues can occur intentionally. The Reconciliation House aims to explore and model the ministry of reconciliation as a biblical mandate for Christian living with explicit and direct implications for one's spiritual formation. The house will be situated in close relation and interaction with the Racial, Ethnic, and Cultural Reconciliation Immersion Program’s goal “to develop and implement an educational process aimed at fostering within [its] students the ability to be effective agents for interracial, interethnic, and intercultural healing and the dismantling of racism within the church and society.”   Applications will be taken in the Spring.
