Certificate in First Third Ministry
Vibrant Faith Training School is a life-changing, faith-shaping experience that draws out the gifts and passions of students and channels their efforts toward creating a culture of spiritual vitality that enriches young and old alike, both in their homes and in their congregations. Students are grounded in family systems, faith formation research, leadership principles and practice, adolescent brain development, and are provided with hundreds of tools to support their efforts.
Certification school includes a week-long onsite gathering, a two-day “virtual” reunion and several online learning experiences, providing maximum learning within a short timespan in very flexible, user-friendly formats.
Students read and discuss the following books: Vibrant Faith in the Congregation, Surface to Soul, Sustainable Youth Ministry and Intergenerational Faith Formation. They read dozens of articles from Lifelong Faith Journals and will surf numerous websites and blogs.
Monthly webinars, recorded training sessions, blogging assignments and Facebook Parties set the stage for creating and presenting a Ministry Plan that will guide the student’s future ministry efforts. Participants usually spend 10-12 hours a month reading, blogging and participating in webinars. Sound like the next step in your personal, professional and spiritual development? Register today!
