Canon 3.06


Resolved, that Canon III.3.06 of the Canons of the Diocese of California be amended as follows










These five representatives (plus one alternate) from each Deanery will be part of a Diocesan Youth Council, who will meet during the year and make an annual report to Convention as the Official Youth Presence. By increasing youth presence in our church governance and at the Diocesan Convention we all benefit from more representative and inclusive voices. Youth bring their current perspectives and experiences in the church along with their wisdom and dreams for the church. In addition to their valuable contributions in ministry and leadership of today’s church, youth representation at the Convention and in the Deaneries provides opportunities to develop cross-congregational relationships and gain knowledge as they grow into increasing responsibility for leadership in the church.
