Faith Finders is a Methodist Confirmation Program designed to provide youth with a more extensive and comprehensive education, help youth workers and church leaders provide a full program for the youth of their congregation through connectional ministry, and support congregations to be ready to receive new young members who are ready to start ministry.
The program is a hybrid, multi-church program with pastors educating, one-to-one congregational mentors for each youth, and in -person events including field trips and Confirmation Camp. It takes place over the course of a year, January to January, once a week to learn and be together. We accept youth ages 6th grade through high school to participate.
We believe all young people deserve the chance to learn about what they believe and why, what the community believes and why, and become powerful disciples of Jesus.
Faith Finders leaders are dedicated to educating youth about the elements their faith is based on, providing intentional opportunities for conversation and learning, and helping each young people make a decision to join the church with confidence in what that means.
We want to take our time to develop disciples who will continue being actively engaged in their faith for years to come. By working together, with a diversity of voices, we believe we can create a program which increases quality of discipleship while lowering the burden of teaching for our local churches and young peoples workers. Together, we can support one another and create the Kin-dom of God.
