Forma and VTS

Date: March 4, 2022

VTS has a long and deep commitment to the ministry of Christian formation and discipleship. As such, it is only appropriate that Forma, the Network for Christian Formation for the Episcopal Church and beyond, should become a part of our ecology in a formal sense. As Elisabeth Kimball, Ph.D., Associate Dean of Lifelong Learning, said in the press release, “Welcoming Forma to our VTS family feels like a homecoming.” Forma will continue to be about the business of celebrating, equipping, supporting, and connecting leaders who form followers of Jesus. This is part of the overall work of Lifelong Learning.

As a ministry of Lifelong Learning at VTS, Forma members will immediately receive a 25% discount to Lifelong Learning live programming and the Building Faith Basics: Intro to Formation Theory asynchronous course for free (Members, look for an email from the Forma Advisory Committee about this in the coming days!).

The Lifelong Learning team is excited to discern with the Forma community about the future of this ministry. The Forma Advisory Committee and Lifelong Learning will be hosting Structured Listening & Dreaming Sessions March 8, March 21, and March 27. Please consider joining one of the sessions to dream and discern with them.

The Very Rev. Ian S. Markham, Ph.D.
Dean and President
