Adult Faith Development

Here are some resources to help your congregation with Adult Faith Development programming.

Starting an Adult Faith Development Program

For starting or restarting an adult faith development program, you will find helpful guidance and answers in frequently asked questions.

Program Resources

For comprehensive adult faith development programs in areas such as spirituality, history, and theology, explore Tapestry of Faith. These programs provide everything needed for leading workshops, including facilitator guidance, leader resources, handouts, and workshop plans. They are available free and online. Tapestry of Faith Programs and Resources offers descriptions of all programs.

For book and film discussion groups, explore the discussion guides available through Beacon Press. In addition, Adult Faith Development Resources presents an annotated selection of recommended books and resources.

Small Group Ministry/Covenant Groups

For Small Group Ministry or Covenant Groups in your congregation, helpful guidance can be found in the book The Complete Guide to Small Group Ministry: Saving the World Ten at a Time, by Robert L. Hill, or at the website of the Small Group Ministry Network, an organization of Unitarian Universalists supporting the spiritual practice of small group ministry in our congregations.

How to Lead
