Guide to Transforming Faith Formation for a New World

John Roberto

     From Lifelong Faith Associates, this most recent publication (June 2020) provides helpful background on how far faith formation has come in just a few months, followed by a detailed progression through creating digital programming for your congregation. It considers both fully-digital and hybrid models for age group, household, and intergenerational ministries, with rationales for offering all three simultaneously. Particularly helpful is a glossary of digital learning methods and tools, and instruction on designing faith formation “playlists."

Animate: Faith


     In each session, your group of adult learners will watch a video featuring a leading voice from the Christian faith, spend time on personal reflection and journaling, and share ideas with the group. Presenters include Lillian Daniel, Brian McLaren, Will Willimon, Bruce Reyes-Chow, Rachel Held Evans, and 12 others.
