It seeks to promote cutting edge research in many academic disciplines in relation to children’s spirituality, assist in translating that research into resources for effective faith formation at home and in communities, provide a central public location for curated materials for and conversations about nurturing children’s faith, and support experimentation and reflective practice regarding new approaches to the formation of children’s religious identity in a post-Sunday School era. The Associate Director will assist with all aspects of the Hub’s work, with specific attention to organizing, supporting, and evaluating several mini-hubs for experimental faith formation models that the project plans to create.
