Spiritual Formation Ministry 2016 Report main page
The Spiritual and Ministry Formation Ministry (SMF) helps Christians to act intentionally to:
build up a loving relationship with God;
enable a Spirit-led submission to the Father's initiative to mold us to be like Christ;
carry-out His mission in Christian community.
Below are some highlights from throughout this year:
Spiritual Formation Training: We held a nine-week training course Encountering God (from March to May) and are in the midst of a new cycle of Spiritual Exercises in Daily Life (from September 2016 to June 2017) with daily devotions, group meetings, and spiritual direction.
In July, we set up a Facebook page, FECA Spiritual Formation Community, for interactive sharing and for posting meaningful articles, spiritual formation events and useful resources.
Education Workshops: We spoke at the ABC (Access Bible Convention) Conference in September and shared at FECC, FEC-DB, and FEC Arcadia small groups. The workshops helped Christians from FECA member and other churches learn more about FECA’s SMF.
Right Now Media is a web-based collection of Christian training videos. There are over 14,000 videos stored online. FECA has made access available to 233 people from FECA member churches for the training of individuals and small groups.
We gathered together for a one-day retreat at the Church of Our Saviour on October 29th. Larry Warner spoke in English, and Chit-Sang spoke in Chinese.
Ministry Development Fellowship (MDF): We facilitated 2 groups to walk alongside brothers and sisters from FECA member churches who are in the process of preparing for full-time or part-time vocational ministry. The MDF gatherings gave participants the opportunity to explore their callings and to receive equipping for future ministry.
We are preparing Sunday School curriculum for FECA member churches. We hope spiritual formation material will bless many people.
