What is Intentional Faith Development?
Part of your Christian journey is to develop your relationship with God. Your Christian journey is a life-long relationship of where you continually explore and grow with Christ. Think about it: relationships aren't static and life constantly changes. For example, you may still maintain a relationship with a childhood friend. For sure, you still don't act like you did when you were a child and you do things different and hopefully each of you has grown over a lifetime and learned from each other. Having a relationship with God is similar; however, God is also there with you to help you grow personally and to have an effect on others in a positive, Christian way.
Intentional Faith Development is a way for you to grow as a Christian and the way we do it is through personal spiritual disciplines and through your Christian community. Christianity is not a solo sport... God gives us guidance for how we can all get along and depend upon each other.
