Interest-Based Faith formation
Interest-based faith formation provides young people with the opportunity to learn about their faith in new and engaging ways. Cutting edge education models encourage experiential, project-based, and collaborative learning. By allowing students to pursue subjects they are interested, the learning experience has the ability go deeper and it reinforces a culture of lifelong learning. A faith formation program that follows this model might include learning about the Gospels while gaining cooking skills. A ‘hiking in nature’ group might study Thomas Aquinas, Environmental Justice, and so on. Traditional learning groups such as a bible study is also included in this model.
