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.” It is our practice to accept applications from across the church to discern a group of youth and adult mentors to serve as members of the Episcopal Youth Event (EYE20) Planning Team.
We are now currently accepting applications for adult mentors to serve on the Planning Team. Each applicant must also provide a nomination letter from their diocesan bishop. Details are in the following links:
