Participate! Helping Young People Explore Discipleship and Vocation.Melanie Carroll, via The Good Book Stall
This is one of the best whole church 'confirmation' courses for churches that don't do confirmation, and yes even those that do, that I have seen in an awfully long while. Fresh, interactive, personal and valuable are just a few of the adjectives that came to mind while working through the Participate! programme guide.
The leaders manual, for want of a better term, starts with an excellent introduction that lays out clearly the purpose of the programme and how to use the guide, but the section 'reflecting on children’s ministry' although short is quite invaluable and almost worth buying the book for alone to use with any youth ministry team in a reflective and good practice session.
However when we get into the 7 actual sessions for the 9-14 year olds then we find good, strong, practical, and well guided sessions with scope for pretty much any church or group to use as they explore discipleship and vocation ( to be honest though some of these sessions would be brilliant for short faith refreshers for any age!).
For me this course really came into it's own when I hit the appendix and it's stress on how this is a whole church activity - how not only are these sessions to teach young people about being part of the church but how they are expecting the church and it's members to be active participants in that experience too - to teach by example and experience and mentor the children and even allow them the chance to be truly active in the life of the church and community by taking on a placement in the church - think 'young apprentice' in a holistic church environment!
Fantastic course and I cannot recommend it enough, I'm really excited by the possibilities that this course could bring to churches of all denominations and to the young people in them.
