What is the ITSSM Guild?

The ITSSM Guild is a stable and growing community of well-informed teachers and learners, joined by commitment to our goal of faith with understanding.

The Guild consists of baptized and confirmed Episcopalians who have completed the Guild Seminar and who have been formally inducted into membership. The Seminar is a point of entry into the ancient discipline of theology, understood as “faith seeking understanding.”

Guild Seminars are offered annually, in the fall. If you are interested in taking part in a future seminar, email ITSSM Director, The Rev. Canon Christoph Keller, Th.D.
