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 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
Intergenerational Mission Toolkit
Introducing the New Intergenerational Mission Toolkit. When all generations participate in mission together, it leads to a portrait of mission that becomes part of the identity of every age and stage of your congregation. It communicates that mission has no boundary of life stage but is rather part of lifelong faith formation.
