Province IV is made up of The Episcopal Church in South Carolina & 19 other dioceses in the Southeastern United States. Our Province is truly invested in the lives of our young people and Province IV is recognized as a leader within The Episcopal Church. We are blessed with strong individual diocesan youth programs. The challenge comes in our need to reach out beyond what we are individually doing and to communicate with others.
Province IV Youth Ministries Programs
Province IV Youth Networking Meeting - A meeting that provides us all with an opportunity to bring our youth and youth leaders together for 3 days of worship, sharing new ideas, challenges, successes, and network. Youth lead presentations about their own diocesan youth programs. We also build in a service project into our time together. This meeting is always the first weekend in December.
Province IV Youth Event - A service experience we do every summer. The activity and location varies, but youth and youth leaders come together to serve a community, worship, grow spiritually, and build relationships.
Lift Every Voice Lift Every Voice is a three-year initiative of the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina for youth and young adults ages 15-25 from across the Episcopal Church, Cape Town and Botswana. The goal of LEV, Lift Every Voice, is to equip young people to be able to identify unjust systems, reflect on their historical and cultural contexts, empathize with oppressed and oppressors, and take concrete action in response to unjust systems. We expect them to become leaders in their dioceses and to develop resources for the wider church in the areas of confronting racism and injustice and building more inclusive communities.
LEV 2017 The format for Lift Every Voice 2017 is being designed and led by a team of 16 young adults from Botswana, Cape Town and across the United States who have participated in LEV from 2015 or 2016.. During this five-day conference, participants will practice nonviolent communication skills, identify systems of oppression and begin developing tools and programs for continuing these practices back home within their dioceses and communities. We, the Diocese of Atlanta, will participate in LEV 2017, and we will be sponsoring 2 adults, 2 young adults, and 4 youth to participate.
