Planning For Faith Formation in a Hybrid World


The purpose of this two-part webinar is to offer information, encouragement, resources, and creative space as we plan for flexibility with considerations for hybrid faith formation (gathered and digital). Part I features guest presenter Christine V. Hides and focuses on naming our why and core foundations, shifts in faith formation, and initial steps for planning for the fall. Part II featured a panel of faith formation leaders. This webinar provides practical steps for planning hybrid faith formation. The panel will respond to questions such as: What can hybrid ministry look like? How do you move forward with all ages in hybrid ministry? How do we create and nurture relationships? How can we transform the world from our homes? And more.
