Adult Christian Formation

Adult Christian Formation

The Episcopal Church in Oklahoma values adults of all ages as valuable members of our Church, and we offer targeted ministries to help you grow in your spiritual journey.

Adults (35+) can be in a variety of life stages, having experienced a variety of life transitions and transformative moments, and engaged in a variety of faith formation programs and events. Therefore, we want to ensure that we are not only reaching everyone where they are, but are also providing opportunities for them to grow in their spiritual life.

The Episcopal Church believes in the Charter for Lifelong Christian Formation, which supports a continued growth in the knowledge, service and love of God as followers of Christ and is informed by Scripture, Tradition and Reason. Providing lifelong resources for adults can help them grow spiritually, find their place in ministry, and serve in new and exciting ways. With the wide variety of gifts adults bring, we want to ensure that we are providing ministry options and opportunities to help them continue to grow in their spiritual journey.

At the diocesan level, we also offer some opportunities for adult faith formation and community:

Education for Ministry (EfM)

Every baptized person is called to ministry. The Education for Ministry (EfM) program provides people with the education to carry out that ministry.
