Inspired Faith is a series of facilitated conversations on topics that matter for leaders in children's, youth, and family ministry.  Hosted on zoom, these are open to anyone who is interested in participating! 

Depending on the content and structure of the session, sometimes we record the session and post it here for those who are not able to participate live. Even if the session isn't posted, any resources that accompany the session will be posted. 

If you have an idea for a future topic, we'd love to hear it! Please send it to Allie at 

Past Sessions:

Connecting with Families This Summer

Listen in to out informal conversation about ways for parishes to connect with families this summer! 

Many ministries of the church wind down for the summer, but it can be a time to make meaningful connections with families in your community - and it doesn't need to be complicated. We shared questions, stories, and ideas, and found inspiration to make the most of this coming summer.
