Announcing the Episcopal Formation Collaborative

We are a collaboration to gather, create, and critique resources and best practices in response to identified needs of Christian formation practitioners in the Episcopal Church.

Building on the strengths of the Episcopal Church in mission, we model practical theology by:

  • Fostering an action-reflection model for lived faith and ministry that continually engages people of all ages and their leaders in the process of their own formation;
  • Gathering, creating, and promoting resources and methods that are Biblically sound and congruent with Episcopal theology; and
  • Offering ideas, tools, and best practices grounded in the baptismal covenant and honoring of cultural context.

Ultimately, our dream is to provide a dynamic environment in which church leaders are invited, inspired, and transformed to become hopeful, engaged, committed Christians in the world.

Our first initiative will be to strengthen and grow Episcopal Christian formation ministries with youth (approximately 6th through 12th grades) and young adults (18 – 30 years) [referred to as young people]

We need your help!
Complete the short survey to share what is working well, what resources you need, and what challenges you are facing in ministry with young people. Click here to fill out the survey.

Thank you for your help and collaboration in this new initiative.
