EYE (pronounced E-Y-E) stands for Episcopal Youth Event. It is a gathering of youth ages 15-19 or grades 9-12 from around the world who assemble on a college campus to learn, laugh, and worship together. It is the single greatest and second largest event the Episcopal Church does.
The culture of EYE is like summer camp…a really, really big summer camp! Until you have seen it first-hand, the sight of over a thousand young people and adult leaders in one place is unimaginable. The enthusiasm of the young people in attendance is infectious, equaled only by the compelling commitment to their faith, showing the vitality of The Episcopal Church both now and in the future.
With close to 1,500 people in attendance (including youth, their adult mentors, clergy, and bishops from around the church), EYE focuses on developing leadership skills, spiritual practices, and early stages of vocational discernment. Time is spent in worship (amazing, awesome, and authentic worship), large group presentations (from entertaining, educated, engaging folks), small group discussions, workshops on a variety of topics (Participants select the workshops they wish to attend.), and time to hang-out and meet Episcopalians from around the world. Youth will get to know people who share their Episcopal faith in all of its diversity. They may even learn some new things, grow and change as they broaden their experience and watch God move in others (and in themself). And they’ll be able to sleep in a college dorm and experience college cafeteria food (ok, maybe not always a selling point, but still an experience!).
Specific details about who the speakers will be and what workshops will be offered are not available…yet! EYE is currently being planned by a diverse team of youth from across the church to address the needs, interests, and realities of today’s young people.
Resources for clergy and lay leaders.
