Beyond Brainwashing – Once young people learn about our God of Grace and Love, why would they not choose to be Presbyterian? It can’t just be brainwashing. It has to be so much more.
Theocademy Confirmation is the newest creation of the Synod of Mid-America’s Theocademy series featuring interviews conducted by crazy smart kids asking really deep, tough questions of their pastors AND then the pastors giving awesome thoughtful answers that will totally change what Confirmation can be.
Confirmation is now available for special pre-order through August 31. DVD’s will ship the first week of September. Please allow time for delivery.
