The Fahs Innovation Network

Do you want to use your creativity and imagination to bring meaningful change to our spiritual and social world?  Submit your name and profile into the database for the Fahs Innovation Network.

Submitting your profile puts your name on the list of educators/religious workers willing to serve on work-teams offering solutions to nagging problems in religious education and/or congregational life. When we get a project that needs your skill set, we’ll reach out to you and, hopefully, make a match. When possible, stipends are offered to support the work.

How it Works 

Think of the Fahs Collaborative as a wheelhouse that entertains problems within spiritual teaching and learning that generates alternative solutions. This kind of work requires a cohort of thoughtful teachers and coaches to design appropriate educational responses. After the Collaborative contracts with a faith-based client (a congregation, organization or committee), we will reach out to educators/spiritual workers within our “talent pool” who have an appropriate skill set to tackle the problem. As opportunities avail themselves, we will reach out to you and see if you are a good match for a project. All project teams are shaped with an eye toward multi-racial, multicultural and theologically sensibilities.

I this is appealing to you, we invite you to register your skill-set with The Fahs Collaborative. Compensation for your work is dependent upon the level of funding available for the project and the amount of work to be contracted.  Wonder if you’ve got the right stuff?  Take this self-test:
