How Congregations Serve as a Center of Lifelong Learning and Faith Formation

How Congregations Serve as a Center of Lifelong Learning and Faith Formation

Every church can become a center of lifelong learning in faith and discipleship. Lifelong faith formation can be a reality for every church community, regardless of size, finances, location, and resources. The significant challenges and obstacles churches face are daunting, but they can be opportunities for reinventing faith formation to become more responsive, resilient, flexible, and adaptable as a congregation. 

This presentation proposes seven elements for developing lifelong faith formation that every church can contextualize and customize to their size, location, and diversity of their people. Use these elements to guide your church in becoming a center of lifelong learning and faith formation. 


This workshop will be offered twice to provide scheduling flexibility for participants. Participants do not need to attend both sessions.
