Youth hanging out during Confirmation class at Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church.

Confirmands study the main tenets of the Christian faith together. Youth learn from Pastor Leigh DeVries and Confirmation Extraordinaire Courtenay Willcox and are led in their small groups by dedicated and faithful youth ministry volunteers.

Each Confirmand is paired with a Confirmation Mentor, an adult member of our congregation who walks with them throughout the yearlong confirmation journey. Mentors provide spiritual, emotional, and practical support to our confirmands as they discern what roles they want to take on in the church's life.

Lastly, BMPC follows a special tradition regarding confirmation. Every confirmand participates in a month-long daily spiritual practice, offering their experience in a presentation the week before Confirmation Sunday. Session members of BMPC then view the Confirmation projects and interview each youth about their experience, hearing from them about why they want to be voting members of the congregation.
