MARTIN INSTITUTE & DALLAS WILLARD CENTER
Welcome to the Martin Institute for Christianity and Culture and Dallas Willard Center for Christian Spiritual Formation at Westmont College.
A primary desire for the Martin Institute and Dallas Willard Center is to help fan the flames of authentic transformation into Christlikeness that is at the heart of Dallas Willard’s writing and teaching.
The Martin Institute, together with the Dallas Willard Center (MI/DWC), was founded at Westmont College for the purpose of helping to establish the field of Christian spiritual formation as a discipline of public knowledge.
More specifically, the vision of the MI/DWC is to place an enduring emphasis on the literary, historical and Christian heritage of Dallas Willard and others in the modern spiritual formation movement. Collectively, these authors form a school of thought that focuses on the possibility and path to authentic spiritual and moral transformation.
