Specialized Courses

Specialized Faith Formation Courses focus on one element of lifelong faith formation—intergenerational, family, children and youth, adult, missional, and digital—and will help you develop in-depth knowledge, practices, and skills for designing faith formation for the whole congregation. You will design strategies, programs, and activities to implement in your church.

Each course includes two live, online presentations, two self-paced online learning sessions, and a participant project that applies the learning to the leader's church.

Required: Access to high-speed internet and a computer with audio and a video camera to utilize the ZOOM video conferencing platform. Online presentations are also recorded for later viewing.

The fee for each Specialized Course is $150.
There is one required book for each course; the cost of the book is additional.

Leaders will design one or more strategies to create new or enhanced programming that engages families at church, at home, and in the community.
