Letter to South Central Jurisdiction Delegates

We believe in the future strength and fruitfulness of the churches of the South Central Jurisdiction. To be well positioned for the future, we need to make adjustments on every level of the church, including episcopal deployment.

Youth Observers

Each conference in the South Central Jurisdiction will have 3 youths and 1 adult representative meet together during Youth ’23 to elect members of the South Central Jurisdiction to attend as “Youth Observers” to Jurisdictional Conference 2024 and 1 Adult Chaperone. You do not have to be present at Youth ’23 to be elected but must have submitted your application online by July 23.

Youth 2023

We believe that the young people who come to YOUTH 2023 will set an example for the church itself – demonstrating how to come together in Christian fellowship and celebrate our shared call to grow as world changing disciples of Jesus Christ, no matter the obstacle.
