Lifelong Christian Formation

Greetings! Please look below and on the pages to your right for a wide variety of resources opportunities for faith formation leaders in the coming year! All of these events are open to people from congregations of all sizes, for people who are new at leading or just exploring a ministry or an idea connected to Christian formation, as well as people who have been leading something for a long time and need the new ideas and energy that comes from connecting with others doing similar work. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to be in touch!
