The Institute for Progressive Spirituality has been formed as a 501c3 organization by progressive thinking Christians and spiritual allies in the Greater Portland area who have the conviction that justice and peace are grown and nourished in the fertile soil of spirituality. We offer opportunities for growth through lectures, time-limited classes, small groups, experiential events, and spiritual companionship. Rev. Dr. Chuck Cooper, a United Methodist clergy, is the Executive Director.
