Christian Formation

Who We Are

The Department of Christian Formation strives to help Covenant churches become vibrant communities of life-long learning…communities that regularly see the transforming power of Jesus at work in the lives of children, youth, and adults. Through seminars, consulting, resources, and events, Christian Formation develops leaders who are growing deeper in Christ and further in mission. Christian formation is the responsibility of the whole of the church. It is the continuing journey of being transformed by the Holy Spirit into the likeness of Christ, experiencing and expressing love for God and others.

While education is an essential component of Christian formation, the phrase Christian education fails to connote the kind of whole-person learning Jesus sought. Our goal is to move from knowledge to informed practice, through the transforming work of the Spirit, so that the Bible comes alive among us. We seek to integrate our knowing with our being and our doing.
