MENTORS: Pastor, Elders, Congregation and Parents, we give this candicate


back to you in the same spirit of love that you gave him to us for
preparation. We assure you that we have trained him in the ways
he should go and affirm that he is ready to assume the
responsibilities of manhood.

PASTOR: Elders, what is your pleasure?

ELDERS: Pastor, we have tested this candidate and have found him to be fit
for the journey of manhood that lies ahead. We, therefore, affirm
his movement from one clearly defined state of existence to the next.

PASTOR: Congregation, what is your pleasure?

CONGREGATION: As people of faith who understand the need for Unashamedly


Black and Unapologetically Christian men in the village, we
affirm this candidate as the new man he has become.

PASTOR: Parents, are you ready now to accept the fact that your boy has
become a man and to give him the respect and responsibilities
that come with manhood?

PARENTS: I affirm that my son has become a man and that I will not hold
back any right or responsibility he has earned in accord with that status.

PASTOR: Candidate, hearing these affirmations made in the presence of


God, do you now accept the identity and responsibility of
manhood that has been conferred upon you by your extended
family?

CANDIDATE: As I have put aside my childish ways and become a man, I accept
the wisdom of my elders who have guided me into manhood, and
I pledge to demonstrate with my heart, mind, soul and body that
I am the man you have recognized.

PASTOR: Prayer of Affirmation
