"FORM" ".....be not conformed but transFORMed..."
"Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transFORM you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will know what God wants you to do, and you will know how good and pleasing and perfect his will really is." Romans 12:2
The purpose of FORM is to bring a high level of support and challenge around two questions young leaders are asking:
What am I supposed to do with my future?
How do I get free from some of my past?
Goals of FORM:
To accelerate growth in discipleship and personal development, and bring further clarity of gifts and callings in life.
To develop missional movement leaders with the character and competencies of Jesus to lead others in discipleship and mission (discipleship groups and missionary living).
To equip with the skills necessary to develop healthy relationships and families in the challenges of today's fast paced, rapidly changing culture.
