This is a confirmation program that is more like a process and less like a reading assignment, more engaging and congruent with the nature of the Christian faith than existing programs.
Using an "apprenticeship" approach to confirmation Will Willimon produced a series of learning experiences where adult mentors and confirmands are both teachers and learners at the same time.
This time-tested approach has been extensively revised and updated for usage in todays churches that take seriously Christs command to be engaged in disciple making
The Coordinators Guide can be used by the pastor, if that is how your congregation chooses to oversee and support the process of confirmation. However, its good to involve as many laypersons as possible in mentoring and guiding. This Coordinators Guide is designed to be easily used by a lay coordinator to support the mentors as they guide their confirmands through the journey toward confirmation.
Topics explore the basics of Christian faith:
•the Holy Spirit
•death and resurrection
A study by the Pulpit and Pew Research Center found that Willimon is one of the most widely read authors among mainline Protestant pastors. An international survey conducted by Baylor University named him one of the "Twelve Most Effective Preachers" in the English-speaking world. With over a million copies of more than 60 books sold, his popularity is undeniable.
