Episcopal Youth Community (EYC)
“To know Christ and to make him known, through an inward
journey of faith and an outward journey of service,
giving thanks to God in all things.”
The goal of the youth program is to incorporate teens in to a sacred community of radical acceptance, allowing them the space to figure out who they are, what gifts they have to offer, and how they can offer those gifts. They are able to make a deeper connection to the presence of God so that they may become co-creators with God in the world.
