Episcopal Diocese of Western Louisiana 

The Diocesan Youth Commission (DYC), in partnership with the Congregational Vitality Institute (CVI), is planning a day-long workshop to help congregations develop and sustain youth ministry.  Because nurturing adolescent faith formation is the work of the Church as a whole--not just youth ministers--all clergy and laity are encouraged to attend.  

Featured speaker and facilitator will be Ms. Jamie Martin Currie, Missioner for Christian Formation for the Diocese of Texas.  In this role, she oversees the diocesan youth ministries, assesses children's ministries, and develops new children, youth, and family ministers.  She also serves as a curricula consultant and presents workshops at parishes throughout the Diocese.  In addition, she assists the Episcopal Church at the provincial and national levels and is currently president of Forma (the national network of Christian Formation leaders in the Episcopal Church and other denominations).

Online registration will be available through Wednesday, March 15.

Please note:  Beginning in 2017, CVI programs will be on a "pay as you go" basis.  Each event will cost $15, payable in advance (check or credit card) or at the door (credit card, check, or cash).
