Bishop Briner values young people and their God-given gifts and talents and has made it a priority to recognize youth members of our synod who have served God, their church, and their community with distinction. A committee gathers nominee information, removes identifying pieces to remain anonymous and submits top nominees for the Bishop to select one male and one female recipient of the Bishop's Youth Leadership Award. All nominees are recognized and the recipients are announced at the High School Youth Gathering.
High School youth in the Southwestern Texas Synod who are currently enrolled in the 12th grade and have made a significant contribution of service with their time and talents to their church and community can be nominated. Youth leaders may nominate one or two youth from their congregation. Immediately following receipt of nomination, those nominated will be contacted to complete an application and provide references from 3 individuals--a rostered leader, an adult and a peer. Only once the application and references have been submitted, by the deadline, will the youth be considered for the award.
Pastor Gary Goodson, Committee Chair
Deacon Darcy Mittelstaedt, Bishop's Associate

The Southwestern Texas Synod is part of Region 4 of the ELCA-Brandmark
