Applicants sought to plan national Episcopal youth event

Written by Ann Rodgers on .

The Episcopal Church is seeking adults and teens to help plan its 2014 Episcopal Youth Event.
So far even the location hasn't been chosen. The 2011 Episcopal Youth Event in Minnesota drew more than 700 Episcopal teens from across the country, plus several hundred adult chaperons and staff members. A lengthy report to the denomination includes information about the duties and decisions of the planners.
Nominations for the planning team are due by Saturday, Feb. 16, 2013. Those chosen will be announced in March.
To be eligible for the Mission Planning Team youth applicants must currently be in grades 9-11 and must be active in an Episcopal parish. Adult applicants must be at least 25 years old, active in an Episcopal parish and have experience working with high school-aged teens. More requirements, including travel dates, are on the denomination's Web site.
Bronwyn Clark Skov, the Episcopal Youth Ministries officer, says that “EYE is a significant opportunity for building, sharing and fulfilling our call to mission in the world. In addition to the gathering, learning and enjoying, opportunities will be available for mission work.”
