What is the Faith Formation Leadership Training Program?

This program is offered as both a Certificate program and as a series of classes that may be taken as stand-alone opportunities for those only interested in certain topics. Specific information about the classes may be accessed using the links below.

While designed for the Southern New England Conference, anyone outside of the United Church of Christ and southern New England may participate with the understanding that the focus will be on ministry within a United Church of Christ congregation.

Who is this program for?

The classes offered through the Faith Formation Leadership Program are open to both lay leaders and authorized ministers who wish to further their education and understanding about faith formation in the 21st Century.

** Please note that these classes do not meet requirements for ordination.
