Seedbed is a gospel-farming community of like-hearted, like-minded men and women who stand in the stream of the great orthodox tradition of the faith once delivered to the saints. We are heirs of the Wesleyan/Arminian theological vision for mission, and we long to see this way of being and doing church thrive again in our day. Seedbed is a movement catalyst, a talent scout, a tribe-uniter, and a creative developer of discipleship resources for the twenty-first century Church. Seedbed resources people, communities, and movements to love the whole world with the whole gospel. To this end, and in all these ways, we are sowing together for a great awakening.
WHAT IS SEEDBED? Founded on January 6, 2012, Seedbed is a twenty-first century movement and media platform whose mission is to gather, connect, and resource the people of God to sow for a great awakening. Theological resourcing and publishing center in the Wesleyan tradition.
