On May 1st, Forma launched a new membership platform: The Forma Space on VTS Plus. In less than three months, we have exceeded 200 paid members! Member benefits include member only programing, access to a searchable resource library, 25% off Lifelong Learning programing, and more. In addition to building out our membership benefits, this network for Christian formation professionals is hard at work on a new strategic plan. Our strategic plan will include revisions to our vision and core values as well as key objectives for the next three years. We are also in the midst of planning the 2024 Forma Annual Conference, which will take place January 22-25. The 2024 conference will be a hybrid conference unlike anything Forma has ever offered. Worship, plenaries, and workshops will take place via Zoom. Participants can attend online, join a local watch gathering, or travel to one of the Episcopal Conference Centers hosting a Watch Retreat. The schedule has been thoughtfully crafted to include time zones from Hawaii to the East Coast and spread the content across four days to limit the daily amount of screen time.
