Learning the WAY: A Practical Workshop

Learning the WAY: Understanding that in the 21st century, Christians are formed, not born

Christians are formed, not born. This is a practical workshop for developing a catechumenate, an intentional and ongoing formation of Christians. This process is rooted in ancient practice. The word “catechumenate” derives from the meaning to be taught orally, and is the name given to the preparation of persons for baptism from the earliest centuries of Christian experience. The Rev. Paul Hoffmann of Seattle, Washington, will share how to gather and engage people in learning what it means to follow Christ. They present this workshop to help churches realize the life giving transformation of baptism-centered communities in our post-modern and post-Christian times.

Persons from all Christian traditions are welcome to participate. The catechumenal process translates well into a wide variety of settings and faith communities.

While the workshop is open to anyone, the presenters encourage congregations to send a team consisting of pastor/clergy and three or more lay persons.

Registration, which includes lunch and materials, is $20 per person.
