Abstract
Youth ministry was a prominent concern in pre-call discussions with the leaders of Emmanuel. As time wen.t along, it became apparent that some clear goals for our youth and educational ministries would be helpful and that, rather than have confirmation as an isolated experience, it should be part of a coordinated whole. A confirmation seminar, a planning workshop, and discussions by the Youth Committee Christian Education Committee, and Site Team affirmed the desire for goals and led to the development of a process, which in its final form, became the demonstration project. This paper documents the development of the process, the fruits of our efforts in partnership, and what we have learned from the experience. Other congregations struggling with the issues of identity, educating for responsible membership and person-hood, partnership in ministry as a living priesthood of all believers, and goal-setting and evaluation, will find here a model for consideration. Denominational leaders striving to be responsive to the grass roots and trying to provide resources for meaningful customizing of materials to meet local needs and opportunities will sense this to be a sincere effort by one congregation to engage in that process. The whole Christian Church will certainly be better served as congregations take seriously their responsibility for meaningful educational ministry.
