The Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministries of the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta is launching a new and innovative interview segment. “Youth in Leadership” will feature youth who have stepped up in evident ways in their call to embody Jesus’ work here on earth: to lead with love - especially during the pandemic. Using Bishop Rob Wright’s words “leadership is the capacity to mobilize others to address tough problems, especially problems we would rather avoid”, these interviews will highlight how youth and youth leaders thrive in leadership roles, the challenges faced, and how those around them inspire them and how they inspire others.
