Christian Education as Spiritual Formation
Jesus commissioned the believers to go therefore and make disciples of all nations. Ultimately the task of Christian education is spiritual formation. It is forming children, youth, and adults to be followers of Jesus Christ. What does it mean to do Christian education as spiritual formation? What does it mean to make disciples? What does it mean to move beyond the simple transmission of knowledge to empower all ages to lead lives worthy of the calling to which they have been called?
Come explore with us at Colloquium 2008. Leadership will include Jerome Berryman, Nancy Blakely, Carol Lakey Hess, Eileen Lindner, Anne Streaty Wimberly, and Columbia faculty members Kathy Dawson and Rodger Nishioka.
