THE VISION – AN EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
The terms spiritual formation, faith formation, and discipleship while often used interchangeably, there are some differences. Spiritual Formation is the vehicle used for a continuous journey for an interior transformation so that our actions reflect the nature and character of Christ that uses various practices to open one to the work of change. Faith Development is a process of moving people through appropriate developmental stages to find meaning in life. Discipleship is the goal, to partner with God to purposefully cultivate, encourage, and foster the growth the Spirit is producing inside the disciple.
