Registration is still open for this fall's Orientation to Formation program in October.
Orientation to Formation (OTF) is specifically designed for newly appointed formators, mentors and leadership liaisons to formation. OTF provides an overview of the opportunities, as well as the gifts and challenges embedded in the ministry. This program will provide a range of resources for formation ministers. It will also offer opportunities for formation ministers and leadership to connect and share best practices with presenters, RFC staff and other participants.
This year OTF will be offered as a 4-week online experience via Zoom. Participants will meet from 11 AM to 2 PM (CT) each of the four Tuesdays in October (October 3, 10, 17, 24, 2023). Preparatory materials will be sent in advance of each session. The online time together will consist of input, focused conversation in small groups, and large group sharing.
All participants are encouraged to establish ongoing individual and peer group supervision. Formators are encouraged to contact their RFC Member Area coordinator (see InFormation magazine) for more information about individual and peer group supervision. An optional fifth week (October 31, 2023) is designed specifically for elected leaders who have participated in the previous four sessions of OTF.
