MasterClass: Enriching Your Congregational ‘Soil’ for Deeper Faith Relationships

$ 79.99

Tired of wondering if your faith-forming ministry is reaching your people? This class is digging into what we’re discovering in our 4th-Soil Parenting project, a new learning community that Vibrant Faith began leading in 2023 with a group of 20 diverse churches. We have known for almost a generation that our age-segregated, church-focused programs are not helping kids or parents to connect to Jesus in ways that sustain deep faith or regular practices. Led by Dr. Nancy Going, project director for Vibrant Faith’s 4th-Soil Parenting Project, this class will help you learn from our experiments with churches and parents to focus ministry on the 4th Soil–where the seeds are scattered and bear much fruit (Matthew 13).
