Our conference has led the way in leadership development for faith formation through the Parish Christian Educators Certification and Ministry. This three year, bi-annual, retreat-based certification process provided training, connection, and support for leaders in Christian Education including children’s ministry, youth ministry, adult ministry, family ministry, and intergenerational ministry.
Now, more than ever, we realize a hybrid (digital and gathered) ministry is essential both for Faith Formation and for the development of Faith Formation ministry leaders. Guided by the vision, witness, and ministry of Parish Christian Educators, a new connectional learning space - the Faith Formation Leadership Academy - developed. We are excited to launch this digital learning space that will intentionally connect, train, and support faith formation leaders in the Rio Texas Conference and greater United Methodist connection.
Join us by registering to take an online class, or sign up to participate in the three year certification process. Those registering for certification will receive 1 CEU for their completion of each course including a final assessment project.
