Module 6: Partnering with God in the Spiritual Formation of Children and Youth

The Spiritual Formation Certificate will cycle every other year. Sessions will start again in Fall, 2015.  Stay tuned for registration beginning Summer, 2015.

This module will give focus on the need for the next generation of Christians to experience spiritual formation.  Jesus loved children and his example needs to be our lived faith experience with children both in our homes and communities.  Children and youth have a great capacity to respond to God. Jenn has a contagious enthusiasm and deep passion for the spiritual formation of children and youth with many practical ideas of how to implement and engage this ministry.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Cultivate an awareness about the importance of Children’s Spiritual Formation
  • Explore the history of children’s spiritual formation in the Christian church
  • Be exposed to an overview of available models for spiritually forming the next generation
  • Receive practical examples on how to implement this with the children in your own life in both a one on one and group experience
