The Faith Formation Working Group is dedicated to assisting congregations in the lifelong process of learning and growing in the Christian faith. We consult, provide and curate resources, design and lead training, and support churches and institutions of the diocese in achieving their faith formation goals. With the move into the digital realm, we now partner with  with Congregational Ministries in the  training and support of lay and ordained leaders.

The Faith Formation Working Group can help you with these areas:
– Retreats
– Scholarships for formation conferences and training
– Diocesan wide learning events/training
– Curriculum consultation for all ages
