The Episcopal Diocese of Southwest Florida hosted the Province IV Youth Ministries Leadership and Network Meeting at DaySpring Conference Center on November 30 - December 3, 2017. The meeting brings youth and adult leaders from across the southeast together to share experiences, support each other’s ministries, and plan future events.
The group of over 50 youth and adult leaders arrived on Thursday night with much enthusiasm. They shared stories of their challenges and successes, played games, did teambuilding exercises, and worshiped together.
South Carolina was represented at the meeting by Andrea McKellar, Christian Basel, and youth participants Robert Hart, Michael Hart, and Lilly Tipton of Grace.
