Kanuga’s 2017 Christian Formation Conference

Faith Formation for All God’s People in a Era of Change with John Roberto

Every day we experience the reality that we are living in an era of change, but, more importantly, we are living in a change of eras. The models of faith formation developed over the past decades cannot keep pace with the challenges of this new era. We need something very new to address the lives of 21st century families, children, adolescents and adults. We need to envision a whole new way of forming faith — a new ecosystem of intergenerational relationships and faith experiences at church, lifelong faith formation from childhood through adulthood, family faith formation at home, and missional faith formation to the uninvolved and unaffiliated. All of this supported by digitally-enabled and digitally connected faith formation that can reach everyone, anytime, anyplace, 24×7. We need to utilize new models and tools of 21st century learning. Explore and experience this new world of faith formation and you will discover there’s never been a better time to be engaged in faith formation!

John Roberto is president of LifelongFaith Associates and works as a consultant to churches and national  organizations, teaches courses and conducts workshops in faith formation, and has authored numerous books and program manuals in faith formation, including his latest publications “Families at the Center of Faith Formation” (editor and co-author, 2016), and “Seasons of Adult Faith Formation” (editor and co-author, 2015).
