About Decision Point Program Pack
Dynamic Catholic was founded on the idea of “meeting people where they are and leading them to where God is calling them to be.” Once Catholics are engaged in their spiritual journey, there is an abundance of materials that can feed them and draw them deeper into relationship with God and the Church. But there is a great shortage of materials that engage disengaged Catholics.
Most young Catholics are disengaged. Engaging them is therefore the first step. Until they are engaged it doesn’t matter how much information you download on them; they simply will not absorb it and make it their own. There are many programs that faithfully present the teachings of the Church. But that alone is not enough. While presenting the Church’s teachings faithfully is essential, it is also critically important that they be presented in ways that are engaging, accessible, and relevant.
DECISION POINT has taken more than four years to develop. The truth is, in many ways it is very different from what we originally envisioned. When we first set out we thought that the entire program would be online. But over and over again, you asked for physical workbooks, leader guides, and DVDs—so we adapted. Hundreds of people have spoken into this project, and it is better because of that.
This is the process we worked through to develop this engaging, robust workbook. This is not just any other book. One look at it we hope you can see this. We hope Confirmation Candidates treasure this workbook and make it their own. We’ve created plenty of space for them to write all over this book and use the journal pages to jot down their personal thoughts and experiences as they prepare for their Confirmation day. We hope they keep this book long after their Confirmation has passed and that they refer back to it throughout their lives.

Excellent Confirmation Program
I have been involved in Catholic education as a Catholic school teacher, religious education consultant, curriculum coordinator and catechist for nearly 50 years.
I love the Blessed First Reconciliation and Blessed First Communion program and our parish has used it since it was first developed. It is truly the best Communion and Reconciliation program yet. The videos are amazing and so age appropriate and extremely helpful for parents to assist in their child's sacramental preparation.
I have come to expect excellence from Dynamic Catholic publications and programs and I was not disappointed! The Decision Point Confirmation Program was a learning experience for me as I'm sure it was for our Confirmation students. Although I was not a catechist for the Confirmation students, I viewed all 72 video clips and read all 12 sessions. They were very educational and inspirational. Catholics of any age--both teens and adults would find this program to be a wonderful review of the genius of Catholicism. Matthew Kelly has a way of explaining things that is very compelling. This book is kind of a handbook for all Catholics on what we should believe as Catholics.
I'm very glad Matthew Kelly included the section on the true presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. Recently I overhead an adult questioning the concept of Jesus' presence in the Eucharist. Matthew Kelly's explanation was spot on. Some of the mysteries of the Catholic faith we need to accept on faith.
It was very helpful to have the text from the videos in the student's workbook. I thought the crossword puzzles at the end of each session were a good way to review the content and vocabulary. In the leader's guide, I liked the thoughtful questions that were posed as discussion points after each session.
This is one of the best tools a catechist can have to explain the teachings of the Catholic Faith.
Thank you to Matthew Kelly and Dynamic Catholic for doing such an outstanding job in developing a Confirmation Preparation program.
Thought Provoking Keepsake!
Engaging questions & reflections abound in
This Decision Point workbook to extend beyond
Students age group now into their future as Active Christian adults. Thanks for these wonderful resources for my grandchildren!
Best out there!
I've been teaching the Confirmation class for my parish five years now and have been using this program the entire time. I love it! The videos are engaging and the discussion questions get everyone involved, even those who'd prefer to never talk in class. They're enjoying it too. My class this year has actually made little parody videos of their own, in the spirit of Decision Point. I know many people are using this program with highschoolers. My class is almost exclusively middle school and because of that, I love it even more. So many programs and most of the adults they come into contact with are still treating them like children. This program doesn't do that. They're being treated like the young adults they are and they are more likely to take it seriously.
Decision Point Porgram Pack
Thank you very much. I am so impressed with the books and videos. This will be a life-changing program for both the Candidate and Myself. I am a Sponsor. These books and videos can surely 'heat up' a lukewarm Catholic and rediscover and revitalize Catholicism in our congregations!
Decision Point Confirmation materials
I am using this program in the Confirmation class that I am teaching for the 2nd year now, and it is being well received by my students! The text, questions and DVDs that go along with it are all very relevant. We have had some great conversations that all begin with the material in each of the Sessions. Also, the DVDs are on the Web, so I often ask students to finish watching them for homework so that we have more time during class for discussion, and for them to spend some time writing their individual answers to the questions in each Session of the book. This program is one that I would recommend highly to others.
Confirm and Reaffirm
My church uses this set for Confirmation and we heard so many raves about it that our Women's group has used it in our weekly meetings. It is our "reaffirmation". We are a group of cradle Catholics, converts, and reverts and these CDs have spurred wonderful discussions. We have enjoyed it so much. I am one of the reverts, and if these had been part of my Confirmation, I may have never left the Church. These videos show that our Catholic faith is not an old fashioned tradition, that it is alive and current. Love it!
Decision Point - parent review
This program is amazing!! Last year, we used the program as an at home supplemental for our daughter and her friends going through confirmation formation. We will continue to use it for all of our kids in their confirmations to come. Students learn about the history of the Catholic Church, their faith, and how to make good decisions. With Decision Point, students are educated, engaged and energized in learning about their faith. It is our hope that our parish and more parishes will adopt the Matthew Kelly decision point confirmation program. Thank you for creating a top-notch program!!
This is the second year I have used your incredible program with our parish teens in preparation for their Confirmation. I am amazed at how they have entered into each lesson and when asked to give a summary reflection have evidenced a real depth of understanding. I so look forward to your other programs for our Religious formation programs .
Thank you and God bless you for the services you are providing.
Decision Point - Student Review
Dear Matthew Kelly and Decision Point team,
I just went through your Decision Point program with my school for Confirmation. you guys did an AMAZING job!!!!! I loved all of the encouraging words you put in especially "if it's not from God it's too small for you." I loved your program!!!!!! One of my classmates found a typo on page 61 where it says "the CHOOSEN one." Also you might want to add something in about 1 Tim 4:12 (that's my favorite Bible verse.) I would like to ask you guys to pray for my classmates because we are three days from Confirmation and they aren't taking it very seriously. THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK THAT YOU PUT INTO THIS PROGRAM!!!
P.S. My twin sister says hi.
P.S. I just wanted to let you know that my book does have dog-eared pages, notes, and highlighting and I hope that I can meet some of you guys one day. :)
