Wrestling with what it means to share and offer Christian formation in person as well as digitally? Sarah Stonesifer and Stacy Williams-Duncan will be leading a Hybrid Faith Formation cohort in Fall 2019. This cohort will be a guided colleague group, working online and gathering via Zoom to build community, ask questions, and participate in discussions.

We know that all of our own personal and professional lives are equally busy and full. We want to make sure that this time is made available for you to truly learn and apply what we are talking about.
Our end goal for the cohort members is that they have a plan and resources to implement a hybrid faith formation opportunity for their own community.

Some have asked about a time commitment. We’ll be doing every-other-week check-ins via Zoom during the workday at the same time and day each week. A topic will be explored each week during the cohort, and between the reading and Zoom call, it will be about 75-90 minutes of work per week. But, if you want to go "down the rabbit hole" on any topic, we’ll provide more expansive sources for you to dive into. Our Zoom calls together will be time to discuss and share ideas. We’ll also do some digital ministry experiments together so that we can get a feel for some different platforms and formats.

Gatherings on Zoom will take place on Tuesdays at 2 pm Eastern. Some are content/presentation focused, while others open office hours and student-driven:
