Christian education and formation is a crucial building block for our growth as healthy, mature Christians. There are a number of different small group settings in which Christian formation occurs. Through Christian education, we invite people and communities of faith to be transformed as they are inspired and challenged. As a leader in the ministry of Christian education, you have a vital role to play in the faith development of other members of your congregation. This Guideline is designed to help equip you in leading this ministry group in your congregation.
