Grace’s youth program is apart of a larger community called The Asheville Area Episcopal Youth Ministry!

What is the Asheville Area Episcopal Youth Ministry? The Asheville Area Episcopal Youth Ministry is a new form of youth ministry that combines the youth membership from different churches in the Asheville Deanery. As of right now there are six churches in this agreement; Grace, St. James Black Mountain, St. Mary’s, Holy Spirit, St. John’s and St. Matthias. The goal for this new form of youth ministry is to nurture the spiritual life of youth grades 6-12 in all the participating parishes as ONE community in Christ.

Jenna Sharrits is the Youth Missioner for the Asheville Area Episcopal Youth Ministry. She has a great passion and gift for working with youth and extensive experience with the diocesan of Western North Carolina and its young people. From her work on the Search and Nomination Committee for the 7th Bishop to her service as a Camp Counselor and now Assistant Director at Camp Henry over the past several summers.
