Confirmation Ideas

Last Updated Tuesday, March 8, 2016

Confirmation is an important part of the faith journey for youth in our local churches. But how each local church conducts confirmation can vary greatly depending on many factors, such as number of kids, resources available at the local church, leadership and more.

After the Orders and Fellowship clergy meetings Feb. 17-18, 2016, in Lincoln, Nebraska, pastors gathered to hear some different ideas on how to conduct confirmation classes. Ideas ranged from confirmation camps to cooperation between churches to how to best use mentors.

See what the presenters shared and hear answers to the questions raised in the room that day.
