Episcopal Youth Event 2017

 

Every three years, in accordance with General Convention Resolution #1982-D079, the Episcopal Church convenes an international youth event so “that the energy of the youth of the Episcopal Church can continue to be utilized in active ministry as members of the Body of Christ.” 

Since the first EYE in 1982, this popular event has welcomed thousands of young people from across the Episcopal Church for celebration, worship, learning, and leadership training.

The next Episcopal Youth Event (EYE17) will be held in partnership with the Episcopal Diocese of Oklahoma from July 10-14, 2017 on the campus of the University of Central Oklahoma, Edmond. 

EYE17 is geared for youth in grades 9-12 during the 2016-2017 academic year and their adult leaders. You will find updates on EYE17 registration and other information in the blog pages and links below.

The 2017 Episcopal Youth Event (EYE17) will focus on the theme Path to Peace, based on Matthew 5:1-12.

Path to Peace as a theme was developed by the EYE17 Mission Planning Team who discerned a call to focus on peacemaking and the ways each member of the Jesus Movement can pursue a path to peace.

Drawing hundreds of youth from throughout the Episcopal Church, EYE17 will be held on July 10-14, 2017 on the campus of the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond, OK, in partnership with the Diocese of Oklahoma. More on EYE17 here http://www.episcopalchurch.org/eye

Path to Peace represents both the inward and outward actions we are called to engage as members of the Jesus Movement,” explained Bronwyn Clark Skov, Presiding Bishop’s Staff Officer for Youth Ministry. “Embracing this theme, the 2017 Episcopal Youth Event will focus on helping participants identify how they can engage peacemaking and reconciliation in their communities.”

Based on the theme, the EYE17 Mission Planning Team’s Evangelism Committee developed the featured logo. The logo was designed by Christoph Herpel, EYE17 Mission Planning Team mentor. An Art Director at Gerasch Communication, Herpel resides in Germany and has been active with Youth Across Europe, a program of the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe.
