Diocesan Youth Council (DYC)
The Diocesan Youth Council (DYC) is a group made up of 10th-12th grade students from around the Episcopal Diocese of West Tennessee. They are tasked with bringing their thoughts, perspectives, and interests to Diocesan leadership, creating meaningful fellowship and service events for young people in our diocese, and providing insight to Bishop and Council, the governing board of the Diocese of West Tennessee.
The first term of the DYC will begin in Spring 2024. Members will meet once a quarter over Zoom. The anticipated time commitment will be 4 hours per quarter.
Applications for the DYC are due by December 15, 2023.
Six times a year, middle- and high-schoolers from across the EDWTN gather together for fellowship and community.

Happening West Tennessee
The Episcopal Diocese of West Tennessee has a vibrant Happening Youth program and community.
Happening is a Christian experience presented by teenagers, for teenagers with the help of clergy and lay adult leadership. The Happening program is meant to be one of the instruments within the Anglican Tradition of renewing the Christian church, so that the church may more readily respond to its call to spread the Kingdom of God throughout the world. It seeks to achieve this purpose by bringing young persons and adults to fuller personal knowledge of and relationship with God and to a deeper level of commitment and apostleship. Applications will be posted here when they are available and all youth grades 10-12 are welcome to attend.
