How it works

In each Animate: Faith 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 each session is up to you and what works best for your group. Session resources are available as a complete curriculum or a la carte.

Why choose Animate: Faith?

Jump-start the conversation

Each video blends live action with animation to introduce a question, provide a thought-provoking perspective, and beckon viewers to participate in the dialogue.

Seven contemporary voices

The curriculum features perspectives on God, religion, Jesus, salvation, the cross, the Bible, and church from Christian thought leaders.

Keepsake from the journey

Each session encourages participants to discuss, sketch, doodle, create, and share. The beautifully illustrated Faith Journal provides space for reflection and prayer.

Creative faith formation

Animate: Faith is built on solid theology and allows adults the opportunity to strengthen faith through spirited discussion, wondering, and journaling.

You’ve got the remote

Within the curriculum, you can linger here and skip ahead there. The conversation isn’t completely mapped out, so make it meaningful and make it yours.

Facilitators don’t need all the answers

Leaders act as a guide, bringing groups to a gallery of ideas, showing them around a bit, and letting them explore.
