Vibrant Faith @ Home PLUS
Workshop for Parish and Congregational Leaders
Designed to give leaders the needed strategies and tools to empower families and households to grow in faith at home.
Topic 1: Analytics Don’t Lie
Based on Vibrant Faith @ Home site analytics we’ve identified ten characteristics of a faith-forming activity that will actually get used at home. Our authors rely on these everyday, and so should you.
Topic 2: Using Digital Media to Connect at Home
Do the families of your congregation have access to the faith resources they need and want? We’ll look at specific strategies and tools to help.
Topic 3: Home / Parish Partnership
Explore practical, doable, and effective ways to build connections between congregational programs and family/home life. Extend such programs as Sunday School, children’s religious education, youth ministry, adult Bible study and faith formation, Confirmation and other Sacramental preparation, even Sunday worship into the home.
Topic 4: Resource Showcase
· Vibrant Faith @ Home – content rich web site that supports families who are intentional about their faith and religious practice as they raise the next generation of committed Christians.
· Vibrant Faith @ Home PLUS – our brand new subscription based service that empowers effective partnership between the congregation and the home!
