This year, Forma is taking inspiration from Isaiah 43:19: “Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert” (ESV). Forma leaders are working with Learning Forte to design and pilot an entirely new model of Forma Conference. Our goal with this “radically hybrid” model is to offer church leaders accessible, high quality professional development without sacrificing the ability to connect with colleagues in meaningful ways.

What’s “Radically Hybrid” mean?

When we say “radically hybrid,” we mean that we are designing a conference that offers multiple ways to participate, all of which will be interactive. You can choose to participate:
  • Individually through Zoom
  • Join or host a gathering in your area
  • Travel to one of our conference center retreats at Kanuga or Camp Allen
No matter how you plan to participate, our conference design will take into consideration those engaging individually and those gathered together. We will create as many opportunities for interaction as possible.
What does accessibility look like?
We have worked hard to create a budget for this conference that invests in what really matters while offering participants reasonable ticket costs.
