"The convention will focus on the themes of development that I would like to see for the coming year: Congregational Development, Clergy Development and Development of Youth Ministries. Over the next few months as we lead up to the convention I will be focusing on one aspect of these themes of development and this month I would like to discuss the development of Youth Ministries.
As I visit churches each week I hear over and over the desire to reach out and minister to the youth of the congregation and the youth of the community. These are words that warm my heart and stir my spirit. "Several years ago this diocese, specifically Mr. Schofield had two respected senior wardens that tried to get an explanation of what happended and both were rebuffed by JDS and the "henchmen". No one was every allowed to comment or challenge the budget. (After that year the budget was passed on a Friday night to avoid those nasty little interruptions.)
Since that time the Anglican Diocese of San Joaquin has poured thousands of dollars into the Southern Cone including the rebuilding of the then archbishop's home.
Now, Mr. Menees is intent on youth services? Once again the Anglican Diocese of San Joaquin is going to try and slip everyone a "mickey". Too bad for the youth.
