Nurturing faith

Involves providing opportunities for spiritual formation of others appropriate to their spiritual journey. It includes demonstrating a commitment to one’s personal faith journey, leading the school community in faith, reaching out to the wider community to build faith and deepen their understanding of Lutheran beliefs and values.  It also includes creating an environment where Christian spiritual reflection and formation are valued and encouraged.

  2. Invites the school/early childhood service community to faith in daily life

    Articulates the Christian faith in everyday situations and rituals. Undertakes daily spiritual practices with others in a climate of openness and invitation. Proactively creates opportunities for Christian spiritual reflection and the ongoing formation of others.

  3. Facilitates spiritual growth in the community
