On the heels of releasing significant work on infant baptism, infant dedication, and children at the Lord’s Supper, members of the Faith Formation committee have been asked by synod for one additional year of service to complete an additional mandate of “shepherding the denomination” in its movement toward stronger faith formation practices.
Delegates asked the committee to develop models for “promoting continued learning, reflection, and training on the topic of faith formation and discipleship.”
The committee will now work on coordinating the faith formation efforts of the Christian Reformed Church’s many denominational ministries and agencies, and will make its final report to Synod 2013.
For more coverage while synod is in session, including webcasts, photos, discussion forums, reports, and more, visit the Synod 2011 website.
