Faith Forming Five

Faith Forming Five logo

Faith Forming Five is an initiative of the Faith Formation Team of the MN Conference UCC that honors congregations that are implementing the 5 marks of Faith Formation each year.*

Congregation responses are highlighted throughout the program year in COMMAntary and congregations who have implemented all five areas will be recognized at the 2017 Annual Meeting (June 9-11, 2017).


Your congregation can be recognized as a Faith Forming Five congregation by implementing these five points:

  1. Children & Youth Participate in Worship
  2. At Home Faith Practices
  3. Intergenerational Ministry
  4. Service & Mission Theological Reflection
  5. Lay & Clergy Leadership Development


Your congregation may already be practicing all five points!
Fill out the Faith Forming Five Implementation Form to tell us how you are.

Mail completed forms to the Minnesota Conference UCC office at “122 W Franklin Ave, Suite 323, Minneapolis, MN 55404 Attn: Zac Norenberg” or email completed forms to Zac Norenberg at to be recognized as a Faith Forming Five congregation.

*If your congregations received the Faith Forming Five recognition last program year, you still need to submit an implementation form this year to maintain that recognition.
