The Episcopal Diocese of Chicago seeks to build vital congregational ministries that gather, equip, and send young disciples of Jesus Christ. The diocesan youth office is currently in a time of transition while it assesses programming and leadership structures to determine the best models and practices moving forward. Participation in this process is greatly valued, so please feel free to contact the Interim Consultant for Youth Ministry with your questions, ideas, and hopes for the future of the program.
The diocese continues to provide quality youth events in addition to consultation, support, and resources for congregational youth ministry programs in their various stages of development.
Current Diocesan youth events include:
2013 Youth Ministry Calendar
It is our goal that no child, youth, college student, or young adult miss an event because of financial reasons.
We offer scholarship assistance for all of our programs. We raise funds for this purpose. Ideally we ask the family to pay 1/3, the parish 1/3, and diocesan scholarship funds 1/3.
We work with our congregations to make sure their young people have funding to attend events and camps.
