THE INSTITUTE FOR YOUTH MINISTRY
FAITH FORMATION IN YOUTH MINISTRY
How can your congregation better form the faith of its young people? Join the Institute for Youth Ministry in partnership with the Confirmation Project for an online course spanning three weeks—January 27–February 16, 2019. This course is self-paced so that you can complete the work in your own time during the three-week period. In the course, you will explore the Confirmation Project’s recent book, Cultivating Teen Faith: Insights From the Confirmation Project, share best practices, and tackle tough questions alongside other youth ministry practitioners. Registration gives you access to video instruction, additional readings, and group discussion boards to facilitate your interaction with other teams. For each registration, a team of up to five may participate. Each team can register for this dynamic learning experience for only $75 (book sold separately).
