Who We Are

Forma is the Network for Christian Formation for the Episcopal Church and beyond. We have members from across the United States, Canada, Mexico, South America, and Europe. We work ecumenically with several denominations including the Lutheran, Methodist, Moravian, and Catholic communities.


Our Core Values

Forma is a community of...

  • Love and Care: We share God’s love and care for others by fostering connection, celebration, hospitality, and reconciliation.
  • Creativity and Wonder: We explore God’s creation with curiosity by encouraging openness, playfulness and stewardship.
  • Formation and Education: We equip the saints for ministry by forming Christian leaders who will shape the Church.
  • Integrity and Dignity: We act with authenticity and integrity by respecting the dignity of every human being.
  • Honor and Call: We discern and honor the gifts God has given each of us by listening and answering God’s call.

Mission, Values and Vision


Forma has members from many different backgrounds. We have options for everyone's ministry context.

Forma Connections

Faith @ Home

Our faith is not just something we check in with on Sundays; our faith is how we live lives of meaning and purpose every day of the week, if we will learn to notice and respond to how God is moving.

Forma Films

FormaFILMS is an initiative to encourage content creation for church ministry. The goal is to demystify video and filmmaking, breaking it down to its essential parts, and to show easy ways to use it for mission and ministry. The best way to learn is to do, and the best way to make video useful for you is to make a regular habit of creating content. By participating in FormaFILMS, we hope participants will find inspiration to create their own projects beyond what we do here.

The Episcopal Church Foundation is an independent, lay-led organization that helps congregations, dioceses and other Episcopal communities of faith engage in visioning and planning, develop leadership and raise and manage resources for ministry. ECF’s programs, products, and services help congregations respond to the changing needs of the Episcopal Church in the 21st century.

Through ECF’s programs lay and clergy leadership teams bring about transformation, renewal, and positive change in their communities, live out Christian stewardship, and develop new approaches to mission and ministry.
