Tour of Life is an interactive learning experience designed to prepare youth for baptism or confirmation. During Tour of Life, candidates for baptism or confirmation are paired with a mentor and led as a group on a journey through the seasons of life. In a variety of settings—a hospital’s birthing center, a school classroom, a funeral home, and more—youth and mentors explore connections between the church’s truths and their everyday experiences. Through this journey, participants are drawn into a deeper faith as they experience God’s hand at work in all stages of their lives.

“In the past few decades, Christians have been good at making believers but not as good at forming disciples. Spiritual formation is an endangered art, and if we aren’t careful we end up with a spirituality that’s a mile long and an inch deep. Jeff Wright has created a wonderful resource here to grow up a new generation of Christians who see that our faith is not just a way of believing, but a way of living.”
-Shane Claiborne, author, activist (www.thesimpleway.org)

“More and more of us are seeing the need for a reinvigorated process of catechesis—a process that reflects our changing cultural context, good learning theory, and sound theological grounding. Thank God for Jeff Wright and this contribution—a journey-based, experientially-driven, team-oriented, Christ-centered, field-tested approach to confirmation or baptism preparation. It’s well-written, clear, and eminently usable. I look forward to hearing stories of its positive impact in forming disciples among new generations.”
-Brian McLaren, author/speaker (brianmclaren.net)

“In a culture where our rituals have been simplified and distilled down to a point of near impotence, Tour of Life offers an opportunity for churches to breathe new life into the central spiritual act of baptism. With concrete and understandable steps laid out in plain language, congregations can guide seekers through physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual exercises, all of which lead to an enriched, indelible understanding of what it means to become a lifelong follower of Christ.”
-Amy and Christian Piatt, Milagro Christian Church, Pueblo, Colorado (milagrocc.org)
