12:30–2 p.m. (Eastern)

Cost: $15
(Participants from The Presbyterian Church in Canada will receive a copy of John Roberto’s latest book Lifelong Faith: Formation for All Ages and Generations included with their registration. Participants from other denominations are encouraged to purchase a copy of the book from their favourite online provider.)

What if we could identify the essential elements that make lifelong faith formation work—key elements that could guide decision-making and planning in every single church? What if we could develop lifelong faith formation using several essential elements that could be contextualized and customized in any setting? These elements would need to reflect the best thinking and practice in faith formation and education. They would also need to address the challenges we are facing today.

Join us for an online course led by John Roberto, author of Lifelong Faith: Formation for All Ages and Generations, as we explore the seven elements he believes are essential for developing lifelong faith formation:

  1. Goals for maturing in faith
  2. Practices for forming a Christian way of life
  3. Intergenerational faith formation through Christian community
  4. Family faith formation with three generations
  5. Networks for forming faith with all ages
  6. Pathways for personalizing faith formation
  7. Playlists for engaging people of all ages in faith formation
