The Office of Christian Formation supports formation ministries of congregations and connects leaders in faith communities with resources and practices that inspire fresh ways of thinking about the forming of faith over a person’s lifetime. We carry out the mission priorities of the Presbyterian Mission Agency as set forth by the Office of General Assembly.
Our office is building up:
- innovations in lifelong formation and intergenerational ministries through resources, staff and programmatic initiatives in our churches to include small and non-traditional churches
- development and assessment of resources for essential Christian practices and leadership development for all sizes of congregations, camp and retreat centers, in the home and out in the community and the world
- the work of our Christian Formation Collective partner associations by working collaboratively with them and providing resources as they do vital work in age and stage ministries
