The Spirit of Christian Formation
We are ECUMENICAL. The future of the church must be rooted in mutuality and cooperation across our historical boundaries.
We are WESTERN USA. Wide open spaces and dense urban jungles, ministry out west has its own blessings and challenges.
We are for ALL TYPES OF MINISTRY . We are all called to educate, form and nurture Christian practice in our communities, both lay and ordained.
PNEUMA is for any disciple who is focused on the nurturing of a contemporary, honest and compassionate Church.
The vision of PNEUMA is to offer high quality continuing education and retreat opportunities to everyone in formational, educational and nurturing ministries; to provide a place where those who give so much can be refilled, renewed and recharged for their work; and to increase the professionalism and affirm the ministry of Christian Education and Formation as a core task of every ministry leader.
Sometimes it’s smooth sailing, and sometimes the water is choppy, or downright dangerous! NAVIGATE is a conference to help you in whatever situation you find yourself in, whether it’s leisurely sail or an atmosphere that demands all your skills and abilities. But whatever sea you are in, it helps to have a good compass.
October 1 - 4

Wellness ministries are an ideal way to enhance congregational vitality. Grounded in scripture and the tradition of the Church, Living Compass Faith & Wellness Ministries provides resources, education, training, and support to individuals, families, and congregations as they seek to enhance vitality and to live into the abundant life God intends for them.
