Mission Statement


Bayou City Service Corps exists to provide young adults the time and space needed to search for truth, work for social and economic justice, live in community and be challenged into a more deliberate way of life.

Description


Bayou City Service Corps is an 11 ½ month fellowship program for young adults, ages 18-32. Each fellow works 40 hours/week for 11 months in an organization that works to address the needs and challenges of the Houston community. The fellows live together, share meals together, and undergo a curriculum rooted in leadership development as well as spiritual and vocational discernment. Through Bayou City Service Corps, The Episcopal Diocese of Texas aims to equip a generation with both the skills and passion to inspire our communities, congregations, and the Diocese at large with a hunger for true justice.
