Episcopal Youth Event is planned to be transformative experience of worship, community and mission

From Episcopal News Service

When 1,300 Episcopal youth and their adult sponsors converge on Saint Paul, Minnesota, this summer, they will be welcomed to an event planned to deepen personal faith, build Christian community and create a greater awareness of and commitment to God’s mission in the world.

The triennial Episcopal Youth Event (EYE) will take place on the campus of Bethel University June 22-26. The event’s design team — made up of youth and adults — spent April 30 on the Bethel campus fitting 12 months of conceptual planning into actual physical spaces. It was another in a series of event planning meetings that are also changing the lives of the team members in the process.

’11 in 11′

The Episcopal Youth Event was created by the General Convention in 1982 to “gather and capture the energy and enthusiasm of young people for their church,” according to Bronwyn Clark Skov, youth ministry officer for the Episcopal Church.

The event has taken place every three years and has grown in many ways since 1982, according to Skov, who said it is “very cool that we have the 11th Episcopal Youth Event in 2011” and that, as in the past, the event is bound to transform lives.
