General Convention Endorsement
As part of its mission, Forma promotes the importance of lifelong Christian formation across The Episcopal Church, including advocating for robust and adequate resources for formation ministries at the local, diocesan and church-wide level. There are many ways Forma accomplishes this goal, including:
- being a presence at the triennial General Convention of The Episcopal Church by attending committee meetings, being available in the Exhibit Hall, and speaking on behalf of its membership at hearings
- endorsing (and helping to craft) legislation that supports lifelong formation ministry, including the church-wide triennial budget and other General Convention resolutions
- promoting equity in the workplace for Christian formation leaders through education and church-wide legislation
In 2018, Forma will endorse candidates for the elected bodies of The Episcopal Church who embody the core values of the organization and are committed to advocating for lifelong Christian formation in the life of the Church as well as the importance of lay professionals in formation ministry. If you are seeking Forma's endorsement, please fill out the form below and submit it by May 1, 2018.
The Forma Advocacy Team will review each application upon receipt and will notify all applicants of their status.
