Webinar by Lisa Kimball, Virginia Seminary, and Terri Elton, Luther Seminary
Wednesday, December 9th, 2015
11:00 am EST
What is the meaning and purpose of confirmation as church affiliation in North America declines? What does confirmation offer to meet the spiritual hunger of contemporary teenagers? What can be learned from vibrant ministry helping young people grow in their faith? What type of learning environments matter? These are some of the questions this webinar will address as Lisa Kimball and Terri Elton highlight early findings from the qualitative research of The Confirmation Project, funded by the Lilly Endowment. In addition to reporting on the findings, they will share stories from congregations reimagining confirmation as a vital, transformative process that recognizes youth agency, attends to congregational climate, and fosters youth engagement with adult mentors.
We will send an email reminder but you may access the webinar on our website directly at http://theconfirmationproject.com/webinar/.
