Faithwalking - English

making wholeness possible

Faithwalking is a spiritual formation process where people are increasingly following the way of Jesus, experiencing ongoing transformation, and developing effective practices for missional living: serving the poor, the marginalized, and those in need; working for the common good; and restoring individuals, social systems, communities, and nations to God's intended design.

Faithwalking is designed to walk you through a personal transformation journey that includes practices in spiritual formation, inner healing, emotional maturity, and missional living. We believe that our work in personal transformation clears space for us to effectively get on mission with God in the world.

Registration is limited. For more information, please contact Spiritual Formation.

May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the steadfastness of Christ. 2 Thessalonians 3:5

Faithwalking 101 is the beginning of your spiritual transformation process.  During 101 participants engage in a three-step process of receiving information, spending time in reflection, and meeting in a small group to process what is being learned.  Presentations center on what it means to be fully human and fully alive according to God's design and how that makes a difference in their world.

Faithwalking 101 is currently offered in a two-day retreat format on The Fellowship campus.

What is it that causes such drastic disparity between what you say you believe or value and how you live each day? What force could be powerful enough to drive the Apostle Paul to lament that "what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do...I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out...the evil I do not want to do - this I keep on doing" (Rom. 7:15, 18-19)?
