Welcome to the Seasons of Adult Faith
The Seasons of Adult Faith website is a demonstration of what a network approach to adult faith formation can look like. It is only intended as an example for how churches can develop their own network and digital platform for adult faith formation.
A network approach transforms faith formation from a provider-centered, program-driven model to a learner-centered model where the content and experiences are designed around the people and where they have control over their learning. In a network model, faith formation shifts from “one size fits all” curriculum and programming to religious content and experiences that connect with people’s spiritual and religious needs.
The nine features of a faith formation network include:
The programming in the Seasons of Adult Faith Network are designed to address three learning and religious profiles.
The Seasons of Adult Faith Network includes the following topics with a variety of faith formation experiences and activities.
Lifelong Faith: Formation for All Ages & Generations, and the new updated Lifelong Faith Website present seven elements that I believe are essential for developing lifelong faith formation.
These are elements that every church can contextualize and customize to their size, location, and diversity of their people. Lifelong faith formation developed around these seven elements can transform the life of families, children, adolescents, adults, and the whole church community.
