9781511769877: It's Not Conformation: Confirmation Sermons from the Front Lines of Post-Christendom Youth Ministry

What is confirmation and why do we do it? How must we adapt youth ministry—and church in general—to meet the needs of a rapidly changing world? The confirmation sermons collected here reveal a growing awareness of our post-Christendom cultural situation and what it means to work with young people in this shifting context. This is a snapshot of practical theology at work and represents the prelude to a forthcoming book on progressive youth ministry.

About the Author:

After fifteen years of ministry in the Chicago metropolitan area, most recently as the Associate Pastor for Youth Ministry at Fourth Presbyterian Church, John W. Vest currently serves as the Visiting Assistant Professor of Evangelism at Union Presbyterian Seminary in Richmond, Virginia. He holds degrees from Rice University (B.A.), the University of Chicago Divinity School (M.Div.), and McCormick Theological Seminary (D.Min.), and has studied at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He is co-founder of the Progressive Youth Ministry conference and blogs about his “Adventures in Post-Christendom” at johnvest.com. An enthusiastic pitmaster, John dreams of one day achieving the mystical union of church and BBQ.
