Spiritual Formation

The School of Christian Living is a transformational program grounded in the essential elements necessary to live as “followers of the way” – the way of Christ. The intention of this program is to help all who desire to deepen their experience of the reality of Jesus, and the truths he taught. It is holistic, experiential and based on the reality that when a person encounters the mystery of God in their lives they are transformed and become instruments of God’s transformational power in the world in which they live. Those who participate in this spiritual journey will do so in a community of others who seek to live as authentic and mature Christians.

The School of Christian Living is a year-long experience compromised of 5 elements.  These core elements will be shared in several classes taught at different times throughout the year.

To truly receive the impact of this program it is recommended that a person sign up for all elements and complete them in one year, along with companions that do the same thing. However, it is understood that this may not be possible for everyone.  Therefore, you may sign up for one element at a time until all 5 elements are completed over a few years.

Elaine Matthes, Ministry Associate at The Community Church of Vero Beach, is the coordinator of this program. She will facilitate many of the classes along with other ministerial staff members at The Community Church and special guest speakers.
