In case you missed it on our social media channels, we’ve been posting about our research findings on the characteristics of confirmation class! We surveyed leaders to determine key confirmation program characteristics. In this Part 2 post, you’ll find an infographic with more details about characteristics 3, 4, and 5, and a portrait illustrating them, the Korean Presbyterian Church of Westchester.
Characteristics of Confirmation Class–Details on 3, 4 & 5
Portrait for Characteristics of Confirmation Class Items 3, 4, & 5: the Korean Presbyterian Church of Westchester (New Rochelle, New York)
The Korean Presbyterian Church of Westchester portrait shows a fitting example of characteristics of confirmation 3, 4, and 5, in that theirs is a classroom model, classes are discussion-based, and classes are contextual. KPCoW is one church with two confirmation programs, one for their Korean Ministry and one for their English Ministry: “Confirmation in the KM, thus, is typically offered for adults. Senior Pastor Lee teaches in a traditional Korean style….The EM confirmation program is offered to young people when they reach the age of thirteen. Sometimes, however, it includes older youth and even adults who prefer learning in English.” You can read their portrait at https://goo.gl/kChohj.
