Reimagining and Redesigning Faith Formation

Reimagining and Redesigning Faith Formation

What if you could jumpstart faith formation and religious education in your congregation? What if you could discover new ways to reach those who attend irregularly or not at all? What if you had the low-cost tools to offer both digital and in-person faith formation opportunities to those of all generations and all stages of faith development?

A special extended learning opportunity is coming to the Evansville area this fall. John Roberto of Lifelong Faith Associates will take us through the landscape of 21st century faith formation. We will look at questions of how people learn and network differently in the digital age, considering the people who aren't regularly in church and how to engage them where they are. This program includes three one-day workshops over the fall and winter of 2015-2016 with web or phone coaching in between sessions to customize the content for your congregational setting.

Applications for this program are now available, and the application deadline is August 14. Up to 12 congregations will be selected to participate. Participating congregational teams will learn about creating new models of faith formation for specific age groups and for intergenerational and family programming. In addition, teams will be led through the process of designing a website for faith formation and learning how to curate engaging content for their particular faith tradition.
