Incorporating the Experience of Mission into the Fabric of EYE'14
The Episcopal Youth Event (EYE’14) is the single largest gathering of young people in our church.
3 Days of Urban Mission will most likely be the largest single-event mission opportunity our church offers.
Each person traveling to EYE’14 is Marked for Mission. Recognizing this, we are offering 3 Days of Urban Mission as a continuation of the EYE experience; an opportunity to put faith in action and begin flexing our mission muscles.
Three years ago at EYE’11, we ran our very first 3 Days of Mission. While it was a “beta” experience, what we learned was that Episcopalians are hungry to build relationships, take a stand for justice, and invest in meaningful mission experiences.
We are excited to carry forward this enthusiasm and purpose into 3 Days of Urban Mission.
As you put together your itinerary for EYE’14, we urge you to plan to participate in 3 Days of Urban Mission: July 13-16. We anticipate the inclusive price for the program will be $275 – $300 per person and will finalize the price as soon as the lodging contract is executed.
In the meantime, I offer a few reminder links as you to prepare for EYE’14:
