We teach and consult on social justice issues, creation care theology and regenerative farming practices.

Core Values:

Justice & Righteousness:                                                                                                                                          

JPTS believes that justice (making right decisions) and righteousness (right relatedness) are two sides of the same coin, and it is with this understanding that we pursue justice by way of living in right relationship with God, people, and the earth

Contemplative Activism:

Out of the belief that biblical justice is done only as an overflow of deep intimacy with God, JPTS seeks to nurture the daily rhythms and practices of christian spiritual disciplines

Solidarity & Advocacy:                                                                                                                            

JPTS seeks to find ways to live in solidarity with our brothers and sisters living in poverty and to advocate on their behalf based on the love of God and the principles of biblical social justice


JPTS seeks to create resilient communities by practicing and teaching inter-dependence and diversity, and by building on the strengths and capacities of individuals and ecosystems


Permaculture is the conscious design of 'cultivated' ecosystems that have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems. JPTS seeks to practice, teach, and consult based on the principles of permaculture design and subsistence agriculture
