The Journey of Quadratos

The Mission of Heart and Mind Communities

By Spirit’s grace, our collective efforts, shared resources and fervent prayer, we believe that Heart and Mind Communities are helping to birth Christianity anew.

We also believe that this birth must be sheltered, and that our efforts need to be founded upon personal and communal growth, refreshed traditions, recovering The Great Journey’s map, and bringing all of these aspects together in sound spiritual formation experienced in a communal setting.

We are committed to transforming Christianity one heart by one heart, birthing Christian practice anew and changing ourselves as we change our world.
