Episcopal Youth Event (next event 2020)
Every three years, 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.” (General Convention Resolution #1982-D079)
EYE is geared for youth in grades 9-12 and their adult leaders.
Each year the Episcopal Youth Event focuses on a different theme that enables youth to engage in the ministry of the church. The next EYE event will take place in 2020.
