Diocese of Easton Announces New Youth Missioner
The diocese is happy to announce that, beginning January 2, our new Youth Missioner will be Joanne Fisher. Joanne is an active communicant in our diocese. She served as full-time Youth Minister at Christ Church, Easton for ten years and has extensive experience in leading mission trips, leadership training for youth ministry and Christian education, and youth retreats and conferences. She writes, “I am extremely passionate about sharing the love of Christ with young people and about the opportunity to inspire, embolden, and equip others to reach more youth and young families within our Diocese.”
This new position includes working at Camp Wright during summer camp season coordinating the Serendipity Program.
We are grateful for the hard and prayerful work of the Youth Missioner search committee, and look forward to Joanne’s gifted ministry among and for us all in the diocesan community.

Almighty God, heavenly Father, you have blessed us with the joy and care of children: Give us calm strength and patient wisdom as we bring them up, that we may teach them to love whatever is just and true and good, following the example of our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen. (Book of Common Prayer 829)
