The Future of Adult Faith Formation
2015 National Symposium
From October 1-3, 2015 over 100 faith formation leaders from across the U.S. and Canada gathered in Connecticut to explore the future of adult faith formation at a symposium convened by LifelongFaith Associates. The participants were guided through a scenario planning process to create four scenarios for the future of adult faith formation in congregations and to design strategies for using the scenarios to design new initiatives and projects in adult faith formation.
