Building Faith


“Building Faith is an online publication that provides theologically rich, practically oriented articles on Christian formation. My deep hope is that Building Faith may meet all formation leaders where they are and help sustain them in the joys, surprises, and struggles of faith formation among their communities.”

Jodi Belcher, Th.D.
