Confirmation exists as a central component of the life and practice of many congregations, yet there is often a great deal of confusion about its purpose, effectiveness, and role in a young person’s faith journey. Come gather with other youth workers and Christian educators to engage the findings of the The Confirmation Project’s extensive research, to explore best practices for strengthening discipleship in youth, and to dream together about new ways to innovate your congregation’s confirmation process!

Cost: Cost includes program, refreshments, and brunch on Tuesday.
