The goal of community
One of the goals of The Spiritual Formation Focus is to provide a place of community for students at the start of their Talbot experience. Beginning with the introductory course and continuing throughout the entire program, students will meet in small group cohorts to discuss the content of the individual courses and the impact it is having on their own lives.
The cohort groups become a place for support, prayer and community within the Talbot academic environment. The goal is for the same cohort group to remain together throughout the duration of the SFF program. Not only do cohort groups meet weekly throughout the semester, they also take retreats together in the first two semesters of the program to more deeply consider the interaction of the course material with their individual stories, reflecting on God’s past work in their lives and His call upon their futures.
