Just in case you missed it on our social media channels, we’ve returned to an exploration of findings from our qualitative research! A few months ago, we discussed our qualitative research key learnings, along with four dimensions that surfaced regarding the design, leadership, ecology, and curriculum of confirmation. Now, we’ve turned our attention to nine recurring sub-themes in confirmation and related practices that we found underneath these four dimensions (see infographic below). These sub-themes provide the threads that, when woven together, create the tapestry of confirmation in each location, region of the country, and denomination. Recognizing how important contextual factors were and the amount of customization taking place, it is remarkable that such consistency surfaced. We’ll be posting more details about each sub-theme, plus portraits illustrating many of them, in the coming weeks!
