Youth ministry in the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth seeks to connect directly with the youth of the diocese for fellowship and diocesan-wide events. We also seek to be a resource for youth workers, lay or ordained, volunteer or paid, throughout the diocese. We work to provide a safe church environment for all youth and adults throughout the diocese.

Youth ministry in the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth strives to live up to the diocesan stated commitments to transparency and hospitality. We believe that youth ministry is vital to the present and future spiritual health of youth, adults, and the diocese. It is this belief that undergirds our work.

Youth Ministry members are the Rev. Amy Haynie, the Rev. Andrew Wright, the Rev. Tracie Middleton, the Rev. Jordan Haynie Ware, the Rev. Andrew Benko, Brother David Baggett, Mrs. Corrie Cabes, the Rev. Melanie Barnett Wright, the Rev. Bill Stanford, and the Rev. Curt Norman. We meet on an as-needed basis. If you have an interest in youth ministry, please contact the Rev. Amy Haynie at
