Confirmation is a milestone in your child's walk with Jesus and their life of faith. They will experience unforgettable retreats, phenomenal mentorships, engaging Biblical teaching, and so much more. Over the course of the three year program, students will grow in understanding about what they believe, they will make friends that will last a lifetime, and they will continue to build upon the faith foundation that you as parents have already begun. This program is open to students entering grades 6th, 7th, 8th.
