Forming Disciples in Mission

Christ calls all Catholics to become intentional disciples—to spread God’s Word, create and lead new disciples, and be witnesses to the power of His transformative love.

Forming Disciples in Mission helps parishes raise up new disciples and leaders. It equips them with the language and skills needed for evangelization.

About Forming Disciples in Mission

Forming Disciples in Mission is a one- or two-day workshop for parish leaders and baptized disciples to develop a foundation, common language, and skillset to carry out evangelization.

Parishes organizing this program can help disciples:

  • Learn how to share their personal testimonies.
  • Create a firm understanding of what evangelization is.
  • Discuss practical ways to evangelize the community and the world.
