Welcome David Dixon, Youth and Family Minister

​​We are pleased to welcome David Dixon as our new full-time Youth and Family Minister. David holds a Master of Divinity degree from Emory University, and over the past twenty years has served in a variety of contexts working primarily with children, youth, and families. Most recently, David served as the Director of Youth and College Ministries at the Episcopal Church of the Advent in Spartanburg, South Carolina, where he nurtured a thriving youth program, led youth on pilgrimages and mission experiences, and trained and developed volunteer leadership. As a musician, David enjoys playing the piano and was instrumental in organizing a youth praise band. We are excited to welcome David and his family to Good Shepherd as we begin this new journey of ministry together, beginning in August.

Youth Vision Statement

Good Shepherd Youth Group will provide a joyful, loving and respectful community that allows each of its members to grow into the unique person that God intends him or her to be, to develop responsibility, independence, teamwork and leadership skills, and to connect with peers, the parish and the local and global communities through a combination of shenanigans, fun outings, spiritual development and outreach activities.

Youth Group at Good Shepherd Episcopal Church

Youth ministry at Good Shepherd is approached from the standpoint that each of our middle- and high-school-aged members is created in God’s image, yet a unique expression of this creation. Youth Group seeks to provide a safe and loving environment in which our adolescents can explore their gifts and identities as they grow into adults.

Thanks to Youth Group for serving at Artie's Party on March 1.  We couldn't have done it without you!!

"We Have A Place For You."

Youth Group meets every Wednesday night from 6:00-8:00 p.m. 

Homemade dinner is always served up with love!

All youth are encouraged to participate in our

Sunday services as an Acolyte.

Please contact Kevin Johnson, acolyte master, for training!
