Youth Delegates Named for 2015 Diocesan Youth Presence at Council


The Episcopal Diocese of Texas’ Division of Youth named its ten youth delegates for the Diocesan Youth Presence (DYP) at the 2015 Diocesan Council in The Woodlands, TX. As part of the DYP, the Division of Youth is entitled to one lay youth delegate from each convocation.


“The diocesan youth delegates will serve a one-year term on the diocesan youth commission, which includes serving the diocese as a youth delegate on diocesan council,” said Matt Blank, missioner for youth and young adults in the Diocese. “Their service to council is important because it stands as an example that youth are equal members of the church, they have a voice, and that they care about their impact on the church and diocese.”


The 2015-2016 Diocesan Youth Delegates from each convocation are:

Austin - Oliver Chapin-Eiserloh - St. David's, Austin

Central - Elise Ford - St. John's, Sealy

East Harris - Nettie Bryant - Trinity, Baytown

Galveston - Megan Pennington - Trinity, Galveston

Northeast - Alyson Riley - St. Cyprian's, Lufkin

Northwest - Rebecca Davis - St. Christopher's, Killeen

Southeast - Madelyn Holle - St. Stephen's, Beaumont

San Jacinto - Felicia Hernandez - St. Mary's, Cypress

Southwest - Peyton Hoover - St. Catherine of Sienna, Missouri City

West Harris - Olive Onyekwelu - Epiphany, Houston
