Disciple Formation Resources

Missional Living and Leading

This website provides formational videos, practices, and resources to shape and equip individuals and leaders to share God’s love and peace in community with others. It is a work in process because our journey to discover and live God’s future is always unfolding.

Spiritual Formation

Spiritual formation awakens disciples to the Divine Presence in the midst of everyday life. Through spiritual practices, worship, and retreats, we learn to listen for God’s Spirit and discern invitations to share God’s love. The Community of Christ website provides Spiritual Formation resources including resources for discernment and spiritual practice. Spiritual Formation ministries seeks to awaken disciples to the Divine Presence in the midst of everyday life. Spiritual Practices, Retreats, and other formational opportunities deepen our capacity to follow Christ on the inward/outward mission of embodying God’s shalom.

An additional website for the Spiritual Formation Center provides information on spiritual direction, companioning and formation.

Disciple Development Fund

Funds from the former Fargo and Harbor Beach congregations were set aside by the mission center conference for the creation of a Disciple Development Fund (DDF).  A committee is in place to administer the DDF to support those who desire to attend education and training events such as World Conference, Seminary courses, Temple School Courses, and other retreats and workshops.  Please visit the Disciple Development Fund page for more details about what requests are eligible for funding and how you can apply.
