The change in the thinking on baptism affected the thinking on confirmation. Confirmation was thought of as a completion of baptism as well as a completion of catechism (a course of study). Increasingly it is thought of as a completion of catechism as well as a commitment of a ministry.

The recommended age for confirmation is late teens. Studies show people confirmed at a later age maintain a greater commitment of the church. At an older age, their ability to think is greater and they have more life experience, which makes for a more mature faith commitment. People may be confirmed at a younger age in consultation with their parents and the Incumbent.

Each Incumbent develops his or her own Confirmation preparation.
