Faith Practices Toolkit


Welcome to the Practices Resource! We’re thrilled that you decided to pick up this toolkit. Whether you’re just joining the conversation on Christian practices or you’re a seasoned veteran, we hope you’ll find this resource stimulating and helpful for cultivating a renewed interest in formative rituals within your faith community. Each component of the toolkit is listed below for download. We recommend you start with the introduction document to understand how to use the toolkit.

Here is a series of short videos related to each of the essential practices which you can share directly with households and use in your ministry.  They were created for your use by author and pastor Traci Smith.

Now that you have familiarized yourself with the essential practices documents you are ready to dig deeper with our ministry kits. Each kit contains ideas for application on each practice. Look for additional ministry kits to be added as we continue to explore practices together.
