In this month’s show we ask the question: what will faith formation in our parishes look like in 2020, just 10 years from now? What are the forces shaping religious education and what are some possible scenarios for the future?
These are the questions being asked by John Roberto, the president and founder of LifelongFaith Associates. John gave a presentation at this year’s NCCL conference on his Faith Formation 2020 initiative and he was kind enough to join me by phone to talk a little more about it.
Here are links to some of the resources mentioned in the show:
