704. Adult Faith Formation. This course offers a basic introduction to skills and attitudes for facilitators of parish faith formation in a variety of settings. The methods for adults explore the importance of helping participants get in touch with their personal faith stories, the nature of small groups, skills for facilitating small groups, and strategies for incorporating explicit doctrinal content into faith sharing settings.

Objectives

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize the ongoing nature of the conversion process in individuals
  • Identify some skills needed to draw out and affirm faith stories within groups
  • Describe the difference between discussion and conversation in groups
  • Recognize the importance of respecting culture and real needs in faith sharing groups
  • Develop practical skills for facilitating a process of adult faith sharing
  • Apply strategies for facilitating groups in an actual setting

This is an online class facilitated by an instructor from Feb. 5 to 11, 2017.  Participants will have one week to progressively complete the readings, watch the videos, answer the instructor's questions on the discussion board, post two replies to peers' comments, and complete any supplementary assignments. It is expected that participants will dedicate at least 5 hours to complete this course.  Time may vary depending on the individual's pace.
