Leadership Development

Lay and ordained, we all have leadership gifts that the church needs, and so we are all called to grow and develop in that leadership. Here are a few resources; some are specific to faith formation, and some are a little broader!


Forma is a group of Episcopal faith formation leaders. Joining Forma gives you access to a listserv and archive of shared wisdom about formation for all ages. If you have questions about Forma, feel free to contact Anne.

Forma Certificate Programs
Forma has also begun offering high-quality hybrid (online, with a small in-person component) certificate programs in youth ministry and lifelong formation.
