Proven levers for strategic, transformational
ministry for vibrant faith in the 21st century
We invite you to join your fellow adaptive faith formation leaders and the Vibrant Faith team as we spend three days living in to the how-to’s of generating and sustaining a vibrant faith in Jesus Christ for today’s world. We believe effective, transformational ministry will take focused work three key arenas in the years ahead:
Use this year and these 3 key arenas move your church toward vibrant faith. They follow the movements of God to bring new life to the church and its leaders:
- A movement from event-based discipleship to whole-life discipleship.
- A movement from formation as enlightenment to formation as relational attachment.
- A movement from leadership as power to leadership as humble exploration.
- A movement from “I teach you the faith” to faith forming tools are in my hand, almost all the time.
Move your church toward deep and vibrant faith.

What will I come away with?
You’ll be ready to lead people into uncharted territory where the future looks nothing like the past.
You’ll be able to equip your leaders to read their ministry landscape and address adaptive challenges.
You’ll be prepared to move your faith forming ministry from a program-based model to one that is relationally based.
You’ll be equipped to keep the doors of your church open 24/7 through digitally-engaged ministry.
What if I can't be there for three days?
We’d love for you to experience the community and creativity that comes with devoting three days to re-shaping faith forming ministry. But if you can’t, you can’t. Each day will be fully devoted to one of the three key arenas for faith formation: Adaptive Leadership; Transforming Relationships; Digitally-Engaged Ministry. Let us know what works for you, and we’ll help you figure out how to be a part of the experience. One or two day options are available. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
