Episcopal Youth Community (EYC)

EYC Mount Dora is the youth group for St. Edward's Episcopal Church serving middle school and high school youth. We meet every Sunday from noon to 2pm, with lunch provided.

Building Relationships

Our weekly meetings start with (free) lunch and time to just hang out and talk, and finish with free-time to continue building relationship. Additionally, we do a variety of fun, recreational activities outside of our weekly meetings.

Bible Study

The core of our weekly meetings is our Bible study discussions. We learn how to read and study the Scriptures, and practice good study and application of the Word through group conversation. Our goal is to develop sound interpretation techniques and grow in our love for the Word of God.

Community Service

Students are encouraged to explore ways to live out their faith through a variety of ministry opportunities and community service projects. Out goal is to serve locally, and through service trips like Soul in the City (organized with other youth groups in the Episcopal Diocese of Central Florida).

I had the honor of preaching at stedwardsepiscopal today for Youth Sunday.

Our youth served as greeters, ushers, readers, and acolytes (and they were amazing). And I preached on the reading from Acts about the stoning of Stpehen... with a focus on what he did to make Jesus stand in honor of him.

I just have to say that I absolutely LOVE the ministry I get to do these days! It all feels like the fit that I`ve been looking for my whole life.

"Almighty God, whom truly to know is everlasting life: Grant us so perfectly to know your Son Jesus Christ to be the way, the truth, and the life, that we may steadfastly follow his steps in the way that leads to eternal life; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen."

It`s movie day with #EYCmountdora, and we`re watching Amazing Grace (the story of William Wilberforce and the abolition of slavery in England).

"No matter how loud you shout, you will not drown out the voice of the people!!"

What is #HolyWeek? We mapped it out in #EYCmountdora this week.

It`s pretty wild to realize that the crowds went from "Hosanna!" on Sunday to "Crucify him!" on Friday.

But best part is that we get "He is risen!" just a couple days later. That`s a wild swing from on Sunday to the next...

May we remember everything Jesus went through well this week. Let it sink in deep in our souls how badly we need a Savior, so that when next Sunday comes, it means even more to us.

It`s Catechism Sunday with the #EYCmountdora youth today (last week of every month), and we talked through the New Covenant.

I love how Jesus came and simplifies everything with His Summary of the Law and the New Commandment.

Such great conversation about what the New Testament life should look like. Not a big list of rules, just simple focus on the most important things in the Christian life.

Just finished a 3-week bible study with the youth, and a summary (with all the notes) of the study is now available on the stedwardsepiscopal blog (on the youth ministry page).

Great study, no matter your age!
