What we now call the eFormation Learning Community first started in 2012 with a small gathering of Christian formation leaders who wanted to meet the challenge of new technologies that were becoming more available. They focused on ways to integrate the theological, formation, and pastoral needs of the faithful with the growing presence of online connection and communications.
 
Since then, eFormation has been at the forefront of conversations, exploring what it means to be church in the 21st century. This year, the Flagship Gathering occurs on-campus today and tomorrow.
 
Friday’s Leadership Summit includes forward-thinking conversations about topics facing digital ministry leaders. These facilitated discussions of our convened gathering allow the eFormation community to learn from each other as it embarks into a new collective mission.
 
Saturday’s hands-on workshops are a signature of almost any eFormation event, providing practical and up-to-date tools and resources for attendees. Six workshops will be simulcast with distance participants to allow more people to engage in the event.
 
The next two days are a wonderful opportunity to learn from digital leaders – whether you’re searching for new ways to tell stories, or hoping to learn how digital ministry is REAL ministry.
 
Take advantage of the conversations and workshops happening in Addison and around campus over the next 48 hours to discover how and why digital ministry is transformational for so many.
