What do I need in order to experince Forming ?
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. (Also read “Multiple Ways to Begin“)
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 now available in several different formats.
(The course content is the same in all formats).
Please see our Comparison Chart for more information.
This beautiful USB includes:
You can view the format of the USB here.
All Forming videos are available via a streaming service.
There are two main options:
Each participant should have their own workbook for taking notes
This is an extended Workbook with facilitator notes.
The pages match the Participant Workbook exactly, making it easy to discuss the material in groups.
You may also want to see our Spiral-Bound edition of the Facilitator Workbook.
This is an optional text (390 pages) that provides all of the background theology and practical application from which the Forming Course was created.
The chapters follow the course outline, session by session. This book is often read by those who are considering getting the videos.
Please note: This does not contain the exercises that are used in the course. Those are only available in the Workbook.
We highly recommend this for facilitators because of its broad coverage of spiritual formation.
This matching journal has 200 pages, wide-ruled for easy journaling.
