As a Participant in a group organized by someone else

You only need 1 thing:

  • Workbook, Forming: Change by Grace (see below)

To Experience Forming by yourself or with friends:

Invite a few friends to join with you! Working through Forming together with others will add a lot to your experience.
We suggest that you allow at least an hour and forty-five minutes per session.

You will need:

  • Forming teaching Videos (there are several options, see below)
  • Forming: Change by Grace Workbooks (one for each participant)

After you have been through Forming, you may want to Lead a Group.

In addition to the teaching videos and workbooks, you will want to make use of the following resources:

  • Forming Facilitator Training Videos (several options, see below)
  • Facilitator version of the Workbook, Forming Change by Grace (2 formats available)
  • Optional: Forming: A Work of Grace (a book for deeper exploration)

The Forming Videos are available in two formats.

(The course content is the same in both).

This is an optional text (390 pages) that provides all of the background theology and practical application from which the Forming Course was created.
