Rich Villodas is the Brooklyn-born lead pastor of New Life Fellowship, a large multiracial church with more than seventy-five countries represented in Elmhurst, Queens. Rich holds a Master of Divinity from Alliance Theological Seminary. He enjoys reading widely, preaching and writing on contemplative spirituality, justice-related matters, and the art of preaching. He's been married to Rosie since 2006 and they have two beautiful children, Karis and Nathan. His first book, The Deeply Formed Life, is now available wherever books are sold.
The troubling reality is that believers can be deeply committed to being Christian without ever being deeply formed by Christ.
Rich Villodas says we must restore depth, focus, and meaning for our souls. The Deeply Formed Life lays out a fresh, wholistic vision for spiritual breakthrough through five unexpected pathways.
If you read this book, it will stretch you. It will challenge you to think more broadly about discipleship, especially how formation impacts the most difficult opportunities of life today. You will find practical rhythms that will impact your life. And you might just find the life—the deep life—that you have been craving for a long time.
The goal of this discussion guide is to help you process—in community—the material from The Deeply Formed Life. The hope is that this resource will ground you deeper in Holy Scripture, while helping you give careful reflection to five critical areas of our life in Christ.
