The Search and the Joy of the Gospel

The Search and the Joy of the Gospel as the mission of the Church

During my tenure as Director of Faith Formation, the Augustine Institute developed an excellent video series about the search for God called “The Search” ( An excellent evangelistic tool, “The Search” dovetailed beautifully with Pope Francis’ apostolic exhortation, The Joy of the Gospel. I developed an adult formation class to consider what it means to search for God on the one hand and to engage in the evangelistic mission of the Church on the other, calling it simply, “The Search and the Joy of the Gospel.” Below is a link to the study guide as well as links to the two sources used in the class.
