Montreat Conference Center 

For over 100 years, Montreat Conference Center has been “a place set apart” for spiritual rest, renewal, and recreation. The Montreat Conference Center, as a mission center of the Presbyterian Church (USA), seeks to glorify God by serving the whole Church of Jesus Christ by calling all God’s people to a place set apart, for spiritual commitment and renewal, to grow in discipleship, to build relationships, and to prepare one another for Christ’s ministry in the world. 
The Montreat Conference Center is committed to offering safe, hospitable space to all the members and constituencies of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), “space where change can take place,” even the very transformation made possible by the Holy Spirit. 
In its calling to Christian hospitality, the Montreat Conference Center does not adopt or endorse the policies or lifestyle statements of any group, agency or individual.  Rather it allows each guest and leader the space to freely explore and express the practice of his or her own faith within the Reformed Christian tradition, thereby enriching and informing the entire faith community

HumanKind (Presbyterian Homes & Family Services) promotes dignity and develops the potential of individuals, families and communities through nurture, healing and encouragement. Their ministry envisions a compassionate society where the inherent value of every person is recognized, where families are healthy and communities where everyone can prosper.    Since 1903, Presbyterian Homes & Family Services (PHFS) has strengthened families and communities in many different capacities, changing our services to reflect the needs of society. The Presbyterian Children’s Orphanage, as PHFS was first called, opened in response to the needs expressed by leaders in the Presbyterian Church. Much of the existing campus was built by 1912 and by the '50s, as many as 125 children were fed, housed and schooled. Gardens and a dairy provided a large portion of the children’s diet. As new practices were developed to care for children in need, the orphanage has evolved into a group home facility, where professionals nurture and empower children and youth.  In 1964, Presbyterian leaders articulated a new need in the community – education for adolescents with mental retardation. In 1967, a training center in Zuni, Virginia was built where young men learned skills for employment. After a temporary stay at Zuni, the young adults returned to their home communities and found jobs. However, as society changed and new needs were identified, the Zuni Training Center became Zuni Presbyterian Homes, where 44 men and women live together in community.  As professionals developed and advocated for the Group Home concept - a home-like, supervised living situation - Presbyterian Homes & Family Services expanded its residential services for adults with intellectual disabilities.  Zuni Homes closed in 2017 and placed residents in other housing throughout Hampton Roads.  Even thou the Zuni Homes is not open Human Kind does service to adults in other settings and ways.

Union Theological Seminary 

Since its formation in 1812, Union Theological Seminary has sustained the intention of its founders to provide education for Christian ministry that is scholarly, pastoral, and engaged with contemporary life.
A century after its founding, and in response to a need of the contemporary church, the seminary was instrumental in establishing the Assembly’s Training School (ATS) for Lay Workers in 1914. ATS was renamed the Presbyterian School of Christian Education (PSCE) in 1959. From 1914-1997 the two theological institutions worked side by side to prepare pastors and educators for work in congregations, church agencies, and other institutions of Christian service.
The federation of the two institutions in 1997 brought Union and PSCE full circle as partners in God’s service, uniting to continue their distinctive and complementary educational contributions to the church.
In July 2010, Union-PSCE changed its name to Union Presbyterian Seminary to reflect a new vision for its future, signifying the new creation in which God is calling this historic seminary to participate.
The student body at Union Presbyterian Seminary - over 290 students - is coeducational, multi denominational, and international. Approximately one-half are women. In a typical year, students represent 33 states and 8 foreign countries, and pool from more than twenty denominations.
