Making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world is at the heart of everything the Faith Community Formation team does. The FCF team is committed to forming vital faith communities by serving new church planters who are passionate about multiplication and established churches looking for new ways to impact their locality for Jesus through revitalization.
Do you want to join a movement of the Holy Spirit? Do you think you may be called to plant a new church or to revitalize an existing church?
Join the Faith Community Formation Office for a day of discovery and discernment, on Thursday, August 11, 2016, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Eagle Ridge Conference Center in Raymond, Mississippi.
This one day intensive program is designed to help you discern your calling to church planting or revitalization, will share key principles around what it means to be a church that is more about theological clarity, cultural engagement and missional innovation than the comfort and safety of the status quo. The day will include talks by the Rev. William Chaney, representing Path 1 for the Southeastern Jurisdiction, the Rev. Tim Thompson, director of Faith Community Formation and a panel discussion with people who are currently planting and revitalizing churches successfully here in Mississippi.
