Academy for Formation and Mission

Academy for Formation and Mission

The mission of the Academy is to develop a community of seekers, workers, learners and listeners eager to carry out the Gospel in word and action. It does so primarily through rigorous, semester-long course work integrated with in-depth practical experience, providing lay and ordained leaders with the theological education and spiritual formation to serve the ever-changing and challenging 21st-Century church.

The Academy for Formation and Mission provides a quality, affordable, diocesan formation opportunity for priests, deacons, and lay leaders. The Academy’s course work, practical experience, and community life prepare students for traditional and pioneer ministries. Enrollment is limited, but we are dedicated to developing classes that enable all participants to grow more fully in their ministries.
