Foundations is a weekly online way of engaging the Faithwalking process.
Based on feedback from years of Faithwalking practice, Foundations engages the Faithwalking process through Six - 10 week modules that are ALL ONLINE. The NY/NJ Faithwalking Circle is in partnership with Faithwalking, Inc. You can find more information about Foundations on the main Faithwalking website, by clicking here.
Leaders from the NY/NJ Faithwalking Circle have been going through Foundations together and recommend it to you!
Given the current reality we all face, the NY/NJ Faithwalking Circle is able to offer a deeply discounted rate, subsidized by the Regional Synods of NY and Albany. Normally, Faithwalking Foundations and Core Four courses (excluding retreat costs) are $175 each. We are offering Foundations opportunities for $150 each as we continue through global pandemic. Please note: We are transitioning registration from this site to the new Albany Synod website (just 1 of the three partnering synods). The links below will take you here as well: https://www.albanysynod.org/foundations.
