The interactive Dallas Willard Timeline offers a visual display of the highlights Dallas’ life and work.
Dallas Willard Wordbook
The Dallas Willard Wordbook is being built online by our community. With your help, we intend to make the Wordbook a rich and growing resource of terms and concepts, definitions, quotes, videos, and other reference materials.
One great practice to go deeper in our life with God is to spend time regularly in Scripture reading, meditation, prayer, and reflection. We’re excited to provide our community with seasonal and topical devotionals.
The mission of the Renovaré Institute for Christian Spiritual Formation is to make disciples of Jesus, immersing them into Trinitarian life in the kingdom of God. Through an intensive two-year, cohort-based program, participants learn to do what Jesus says is best, and how to share that knowledge with others.
In an effort to extend the field of Christian spiritual formation, we’ve partnered with several like-minded organizations. Visit our selected partners to discover some of the best resources for growing deeper in your spiritual walk with Christ.
The Dallas Willard Center had the privilege of hosting the Knowing Christ Conference in February 2013. Joined by his good friend John Ortberg, senior pastor of Menlo Park Presbyterian Church and noted author, Dallas delved into the richness of knowing Christ in a practical and authentic way. The videos from Dallas’ final public teaching session are available on DVD from InterVarsity Press.
