July 29-31, 2015 Rethinking Confirmation: Signs of Life in Times of Change
The church’s call to help young Christians grow as disciples of Jesus Christ does not change, but our cultural and social realities do. These shifts require us to rethink some of our inherited strategies and practices for nurturing faith. (e.g., confirmation).
Join with concerned ministry leaders from across North America to assess the current state of confirmation and imagine, where necessary, fresh possibilities. Special attention will be given to signs of life, inspiring stories of faithful and effective innovation in youth discipleship.
Registration will open on March 15, 2015
