Spiritual Formation Ministry

As we have prayed about and discerned the focus of Spiritual Formation ministry at FBC, four powerful pillars have emerged as undergirding the work that is before us. These words capture four truths we need to understand and

embrace at the core of our being.

Wooden Bridge

We are...


We are all made in the image of God and nothing can separate us from God’s love.


We are connected to God at the core of our being and can be in a relationship with God.


We are called to receive and to offer the forgiveness that has already been given to us.


Our brokenness does not define or diminish us. The lovely and the unlovely of our lives are held gently in the hands of the One who makes all things new.


‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 

Matthew 22:37-39

The goal of spiritual formation ministry is that we become people who love. People who love God and others and themselves generously, compassionately, sacrificially, and wholeheartedly. People who love like Jesus.

To love well, we need to be people who pay attention to what God is doing and wants to be doing, in us and around us. That’s why retreats are so important.

Retreats help us to create space in our lives away from the noise and the busyness where we can stop, breathe, and rest. They provide space for us to listen for God, to understand our own thoughts, and for God to breathe new life into us.

What is the Enneagram?

The Enneagram is a powerful tool for increasing our awareness and understanding of ourselves and others. It is an ancient resource that helps us to understand how our personalities are shaped, what motivates our behavior, and how to get out of our own way. It also offers a rich path for the soul work needed to love God, ourselves, and others more.

Below are some of the opportunities to engage in the Enneagram in 2024. If you have questions, feel free to contact Jayne Davis. Check the website,

E-connect, and Kingdom News for registration openings.

An Introduction to the Enneagram – FBC Activity Center

Wednesday, August 7, 2024, 6-8PM

An Introduction to the Enneagram will provide an overview and an explanation of the three 3 Centers of Intelligence and the nine ego Types. This one-time seminar will help you to discern what Enneagram type you identify with and how this tool can be helpful to you.

No previous knowledge is necessary!

Once you know your Enneagram type...

2024 Enneagram
Type Cohorts

Currently Ongoing

In-Person & Online

Each of the nine Enneagram ego types will have a cohort that meets once a month to talk about ways they are noticing their type in their thought patterns and behaviors. It is an opportunity to share stories about Integration and Disintegration in strength and stress, ways you are learning to be more present, and areas where you’re struggling to do so. Most cohorts will meet by Zoom but some will meet in-person. These cohorts are open to anyone who has a basic understanding of their Enneagram type.

The Harmonic Triads & Relationships


FBC Activity Center

Enneagram types belong to triads in addition to the Centers of Intelligence. The Harmonic Triads group Enneagram types by how they cope with conflict and difficulty – the Positive Outlook Group (2s, 7s & 9s), the Competency Group (1s, 3s & 5s), and the Reactive Group (4s, 6s & 8s). This two-hour workshop will explore these Harmonic Triads and ways they can help navigate conflict in relationships. Participation in the Introduction to the Enneagram seminar or a working understanding of one’s Enneagram Ego Type is necessary for this seminar.


Monthly coaching calls for those who would like to engage in a six-month Enneagram coaching process. For those who understand their Enneagram type and would like to work through particular areas of struggle or growth. Limited spaces available. Contact Jayne Davis.
