What happens during an Animate: Faith session?

In each session, the group will watch a video featuring a leading voice from the Christian faith, spend time on personal reflection and journaling, and share ideas with the group. The order of the session is up to you.

Who are the voices featured in the curriculum?

Animate: Faith features seven leading thinkers and practitioners of the Christian faith: Brian McLaren, Bruce Reyes-Chow, Lauren Winner, Lillian Daniel, Mark Scandrette, Nadia Bolz-Weber, and Shane Hipps.

What do I need to buy to use Animate: Faith?

You’ll need a DVD, a Facilitator Guide for each facilitator, and a Faith Journal for each participant. You can purchase the complete curriculum, or buy topics a la carte.

How is the Faith Journal used in a group setting?

The interactive journal draws participants to delve deeper and reflect on session content. Participants can jot notes, share creations, find inspiration, and make connections wherever they are—at church and at home.

Do facilitators need to do a lot of prep work?

Animate: Faith is open-ended in nature, but that doesn’t mean facilitators have to spend hours preparing. The Facilitator Guide features plenty of notes, ideas, and a structural framework for facilitating each session.
