eFormation is a learning community for ministry in a digital world.  We believe culturally savvy, digitally literate leadership skills are essential in every congregation and regional church body.

eFormation is a ministry of Lifelong Learning at Virginia Theological Seminary, forming and equipping leaders for digital media for ministry since 2012.

eFormation 21: Dwelling Places for God, will take place online July 13th-15th, 2021. This conference – designed to optimize learning, minimize fatigue, and renew our spirits – will feature keynote speakers, a workshop track, and the opportunity to engage in focused small groups with digital ministry peers.

Digital Ministry in Times of Anxiety

eFormation, supported by Lifelong Learning at Virginia Theological Seminary, has long been a practical hub for faith leaders to rely on when experimenting with the new digital ministries. As we find ourselves in the midst of a global pandemic, the eFormation learning community is focused on providing timely, trusted guidance and tools for leaders to use as we experience these changes together as well as look forward into the future.

You have made it.

eFormation is a learning community.  We are dedicated to finding ways to bring the work of formation, discipleship, and community organizing that churches already do, online.  If you are looking for resources on how to bring your faith into the digital world in a way that is responsible, sustainable, and builds towards the future without forgetting the past, then you have found home.




Online and in-person

Gathering in-person and online creates different learning environments and allows our learning community to gather multiple times with ministry leaders from around the nation. Workshops and presentations always provide opportunities for questions, comments, and hands-on ministry applications. What questions do you have about digital media for ministry? 

We host digital media for ministry workshops nationwide. Church leaders (lay and ordained, paid and volunteer) attend, take notes, and learn about what it takes to be church in the 21st century.  We equip leaders to address and shape what it means to minister, participate, learn, and be a church community. How can we support your ministry?
