The Role of Character in Faith Formation

Kristen Ivy

Can you teach a child to be patient and teach them to follow Jesus? What’s the difference between leading kids toward Jesus and teaching kids to work hard at being good? Over the past three decades, debates over morality and character have often marginalized the words of Jesus, secularized what has always been spiritual, and disconnected the great commission from the great commandment. Today, our world is ready for a revival of Jesus-followers who embrace humanity the way Jesus both embodied and taught during His ministry. Join us in a conversation about the role of Christian ethics in discipleship—specifically for anyone discipling kids.
