MasterClass: What’s Really Happening with Faith Formation at Home

$ 69.99


Join Dr. Nancy Going to explore the results of Vibrant Faith’s most recent “action research.” We believe family faith formation is THE story of “church change” during the pandemic, and that it has both positive and negative implications for your church’s ministry with the next generations. Session 1 will walk you through what we discovered when we created listening “dinner parties” for parents all over the country during the spring of 2022—asking parents about what kinds of faith-forming activities they were doing during the pandemic, what they are doing now, and what support they need from their churches. Session 2 will help us look at our discoveries in the bigger context of Dr. Christian Smith’s recent book Passing Down the Faith—we’ll have participants work together to explore the implications and shared ministry possibilities gleaned from what we’re learning from our exclusive research. Join us!
