“Many Forma members have unique roles within their contexts, whether in college chaplaincy or children’s ministry, and this can feel isolating at times. My hope is that Forma offers a supportive community where leaders can connect with colleagues, grow in their vocation, and learn to advocate for themselves and the important work of Christian formation within the church.”
