About the Whitaker Institute

The Whitaker Institute

The Whitaker Institute equips and forms lay and ordained leaders in ministry. Whitaker programming offers Lifelong learning opportunities that deepen the understanding of discipleship, nurture spirituality, build community, and give public witness to God’s transformational power in our lives.

The Whitaker Institute has served as the educational arm of the Diocese of Michigan for nearly 70 years. Adapting and responding to the changing needs of the church and the world has been at the core of Whitaker’s long-term ministry.
