God will Guide Your Steps in the Right Direction - Proverbs 24:1-10

Greetings in the Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ! Welcome to the Western Episcopal District Christian Education Website. Here you will find information for local, district, conference, regional and national activities involving the Christian Education Department. In addition, members of ACE, YACM, VCYC and VC have programs and presentations throughout the year to share in our region. Our goal is to inform the Directors, gather information that advances the work of CED, teach, impact, impress and improve the work of CED.

The website is a great opportunity for each of you to highlight what is happening in your area of the Western Episcopal Region. We all want to grow the church so that more will know about Christ and his goodness. Let us use the information we have been receiving in training to better world.
