A Place for Justice

Scarritt Bennett Center is a nonprofit conference, retreat, and education center in Nashville, TN. Our mission is to create space where individuals and groups engage each other to achieve a more just world.

Owned by United Methodist Women, our campus is formerly home to United Methodist-related Scarritt College for Christian Workers (1924–1980) and Scarritt Graduate College (1981–1988). Today, Scarritt Bennett Center works to continue the powerful legacy of the Scarritt students, faculty, and staff in the fight for women’s empowerment, racial justice, and dignity for all.

Sohl Space Campaign

IN HONOR OF JOYCE SOHL

Joyce Sohl’s impact on Scarritt Bennett Center and on women and men across the globe is immeasurable. Because of Joyce’s strong faith and convictions, Scarritt Bennett Center not only exists, it thrives as a place where women are empowered, ordinary people organize for justice and change, and laity find their faith renewed, strengthened, and transformed. Joyce’s Soul Work programs—such as Poet’s Corner, Tuesdays in the Chapel, and Vespers & All That Jazz—reach thousands of people every year and are central to the spiritual life of many. Whether she is bringing people to our campus or connecting with them through our digital platforms, Joyce is a tender yet fierce presence in people’s lives, inspiring individuals and community to grow sacred and strong.

Honor Joyce’s legacy with a gift to our Sohl Space campaign.
