Vibrant Faith: A Free Resource at www.vibrantfaith.org
Vibrant Faith Ministries is a catalyst for Christian congregations, communities and households striving to practice vibrant faith in a dynamic world. There are many ways this resource is helpful. They equip the user with a new vibrant way to think about faith and ways to share it within the faith community. They describe people living a vibrant faith as AAA (Authentic, Available and Affirming) Christians. Free webinars are offered such as Becoming a Four Key Congregation, where you learn The Four Keys of caring conversation, devotions, service, and rituals and traditions are ways to participate in the means of grace that extends God’s love and saving work to the world on a daily basis. Participants will learn several strategies for incorporating the Four Key faith practices into their daily, weekly and monthly routines as well as all facets of their congregational life. Many other webinars can be seen on the website.
Another aspect of Vibrant Faith is their model for Milestone Ministries. Milestones Ministry provides a faith milestone as a marker along life’s journey that says, “This is something important, and God is here, too.” It is a faith formation practice for both home and congregation that helps all generations recognize God’s presence in everyday life. Much of the resources here have a monetary cost.
Another free resource is the Faith Formation Learning Exchange. There are blog posts and articles to help you in your ministry.
Vibrant Faith @ Home is a free resource to help congregations enable their families to share their faith.
