Formed to Flourish

Fuller Formation Groups are designed to support churches and Christian organizations like yours in your call to serve, strengthen, and grow your people. Each follower of Jesus has a specific calling that is consistent with their created being. When individuals understand their unique role in God’s kingdom and acquire the practices to sustain their vocation, they thrive. When your people thrive, so will the mission of your church or institution.

Customized to Fit Your Needs

The Fuller Center for Spiritual and Missional Formation honors the diverse contexts and communities that belong to various churches, mission institutions, schools, and denominations nationwide. For this reason, in our church and institutional partnerships we work to understand your unique needs and group culture, so that we can contextualize the customizable elements within our core program, Fuller Formation Groups.


Culture Building

Engaging your church, Christian organization, or denomination around a common language and practice to pursue transformation creates a strong common culture to catalyze your mission.



We bring the resources, training, and support to deeply engage large numbers of people in a way that refreshes, not taxes, your church or organization.

"I am amazed at how quickly our group bonded. While most of us did not know each other before, now each retreat feels like a family reunion. I am very grateful for the safe and encouraging space where I can share honestly, where others ‘get’ the joys and challenges of pastoral ministry—and where we are reminded that we, too, are the recipients of God's love and attention, not merely instruments for others."

Dawn Taloyo
Group Participant

“This partnership has afforded me the focus to give attention to my relationship to God and my family. That alone has been so valuable. What I have loved about Fuller is their initiative to go to the church and ask the question, ‘How can we come alongside you and aid you in what you do?’ When you have a shared vision and Fuller bringing its resources to forming God’s people in the church, it creates a synergy that would take years for us to create on our own.”
