YOUTH MINISTRY in NORTHWEST TEXAS

 

 

 

The Diocese of Northwest Texas has an active and vibrant youth program, including summer camps for children from grades 3-12, youth mission trips, and youth retreats during the school year. All the programs are designed to help children and youth develop a closer relationship with God through meaningful and FUN activities, and to understand the traditions and liturgy of the Episcopal Church through prayer and practice.haney_family

The youth in Northwest Texas are fortunate to have a leader with energy, a sense of purpose, and a true love for youth ministry. Renee Haney, Diocesan Youth Coordinator, leads all programs, often with the assistance of her husband, the Rev. James Haney V, who also has incredible talent and a love for youth ministry. Both Renee and Fr. Jim grew up in Lubbock, and attended summer camp at Bishop Quarterman Conference Center during their youth and teen years. Their son, Jimmy, and their daughter, Lisa, also attended camps in the summer months, and now play an integral role in youth ministry as counselors and assistants during youth events. You might say youth ministry and summer church camp are a Haney family tradition. Since their arrival back in Lubbock, where Fr. Jim is rector of St. Paul's on the Plains Episcopal Church, youth ministry has blossomed due to their involvement. The Haneys are native Lubbockites, and were thrilled for the opportunity to serve God in their home diocese again.

With summer camp completed for 2016, youth in the diocese can look forward to several times of retreat and spiritual growth during each school year. Below is a list of opportunities for children and youth to grow in their relationship with God during the 2016-2017 school year.
