The FaithSoaring Churches Learning Community has been launched by The Columbia Partnership to empower congregations of all sizes and shapes who are at least one generation old from their founding to develop patterns that allow for continual vitality and vibrancy. We call this FaithSoaring.
The Columbia Partnership does not feel it is the only or even at all points the best Christian ministry organization who can empower the FaithSoaring of congregations. Many others have also been called forth by God. We want to share the best of what the Church in North American has to offer for the benefit of congregations and their leaders.
We have invited a cross section of these people and their organizations to serve as resource persons for this learning community. See a list of these people and their organizations by clicking HERE.
