I have never been more confident in recruiting Adult RE volunteers than with Faith Forward. Our facilitators report an effort/reward ratio from leading Faith Forward curricula that far exceeds any RE volunteering experience from the past. Inquirers has been a game-changer for our welcoming ministries, and we have a far more robust group of new attendees than in previous years.

— Rev. Jonathan Rogers, Associate Minister for Lifelong Learning and Growth at UU Congregation of Atlanta, GA

“The clear path to membership that had been missing...”

The Oak Ridge Unitarian Universalist congregation started using the Inquirers series of Faith Forward in the fall of 2015. We experienced a noticeable surge in membership within a few months of beginning the series. People had found the clear path to membership that had been missing in what we offered on Sunday mornings.

— Rev. Tandy Scheffler, Minister at Oak Ridge UU Church

“A great resource for our congregation!”

Faith Forward has been a great resource for our congregation! We now have more people in the membership process than we ever have before. This path, beginning with the Inquirers Series, is what people have been looking for, and we're so grateful to now have a clear process for visitors and members to get connected.

— Rev. John Crestwell, Associate Minister of Outreach, Leadership, and Evangelism at UU Church of Annapolis, MD

I can’t tell you how lovely it is to have your congregation’s hard work and thoughtfulness backing us up in this important endeavor of growing the faith.

The Faith Forward program is what was missing the first time I came to the church. Thank you for making it happen!
