FORMATION

More Than You Realize

Our Approach

We have consulted with some of the best leaders in the Church today and engaged the Church’s source documents on discipleship to put together formation programs for lay Catholics that transform them into missionary disciples for today’s culture. Christian formation integrates a person’s knowledge of the faith with self-awareness around one’s unique gifting, growth in Christian virtue, a rich prayer life in communion with God, as well as ongoing discernment about a person’s call to mission.

To equip Catholics as missionary disciples for today’s culture, formation at the heart of the Christian experience provides:

  • Growth opportunities rooted in the four areas of Christian maturity: spiritual, human, intellectual and apostolic formation;
  • Personal coaching to discover one’s unique gifting and strengths as members of Christ’s Body;
  • Spiritual direction for a more intimate relationship with Jesus Christ through the interior life of prayer;
  • Mentorship in discerning one’s mission in service to the Kingdom of God;
  • Fellowship within a community of practice for increased missionary outreach to the margins of our society.

Our approach to formation assumes that missionary discipleship is a developmental process of personal growth in Christ. For discipleship to bear fruit out in the world—to be missionary—it must become a way of life oriented toward the restoration, healing and renewal of the human person. A disciple cannot do for others what he or she has not yet experienced for themselves.
