“The youth of our diocese are not simply a great resource for the future of the church. They are a great resource for ministry now. The question in my mind is how faithfully are we utilizing that gift? Right now. Where are they? We need them to share in the ministry. We need them to lead us in mission.”

The Rt. Reverend Robert Scott Denig (1993-1995)
Seventh Bishop – Wanted youth to participate in ministry, churches to be “safe”, and to increase the Diocese’s Hispanic ministry. Bishop Denig succumbed to bone marrow cancer in 1995. He was 48.
Youth Intern for Church Communications
Ministry in the digital age presents an ever-changing landscape of platforms, media formats and delivery systems designed for telling the world about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In memory of Bishop Denig’s call to involve our youth, the Communications Office is offering one Episcopal or Lutheran youth, between the ages of 16-18, the opportunity to apply for this summer internship.
