“Jubilee! is a community of faith, and our vision of a community is that of a vital, involved, committed and loving group of people interacting dynamically and compassionately with each other, the world, and ourselves, as God leads us.”  They honor all religions and all people and “affirm that:

  • All creation reveals and expresses God
  • Diversity of faith enriches our community
  • We love and respect all living things – including ourselves
  • We are called to love with all our heart, soul, mind and strength
  • We are originally blessed by the Creator and are called to co-create blessing in this world
  • We accept the wisdom and teachings of all religious traditions
  • God continually calls us to be who we are created to be
  • We live lives of compassion, forgiveness and justice
  • We accept and follow teachings and examples of Jesus
  • There is wisdom in the Hebrew/Christian scriptures
  • We practice outreach giving and personal service as spiritual disciplines
  • We accept that living faith must grow and change”

In 2012, Jubilee! ordained two new Jubilee ministers in a ceremony that included leaders from a number of Asheville-area faiths, including Episcopal, Baptist, Buddhist, Presbyterian, Jewish, United Church of Christ and Unitarian-Universalist representatives. Rev. Candace Chellew-Hodge, associate pastor at Garden of Grace UCC in Columbia, SC, is now leading Jubilee! Circle in Columbia. Rev. Chris Andrews, pastor for 22 years of of the largest Methodist Church in Louisiana, now leads Jubilee Pioneers in Baton Rouge. Find out more at their podcasts.
