• Gift book for youth and young adults—confirmation, graduation, birthday, holidays, etc.
• Helps youth apply core values of Episcopal identity to practical terms and practice
Building on the success of Call on Me: A Prayer Book for Young People, this book focuses on the themes and core values of youth ministries in the Episcopal Church. Youth seek ways to put their faith into action and claim their “power,” which is a hallmark of the millennial generation according to recent research. This book offers reflections and prayers to help young people do just that—to live out their faith at home, church, community, and beyond. It specifically addresses Episcopal identity for emerging adults, ages 15-25.
"Marked for Mission brings together an impressive chorus of honest voices, young and ancient, to reflect on the foundations of our Christian practice in this complex era. This diverse community of texts will engage all faithful people as we strive to live for union with God in Christ."
—Jane Alice Gober, St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Walla Walla, Washington
"In Marked for Mission Sharon Ely Pearson and Bronwyn Skov have given us an invaluable resource as we work to be a missional church. Weaving accessible explanations, rich prayers, and the personal testimony of young voices, Marked for Mission at once instructs and inspires. I’m recommending it to everyone in our diocese."
—The Rt. Rev. Jacob W. Owensby, Episcopal Diocese of Western Louisiana
"What a beautiful choir of voices are represented in this book! And the song will make you want to join in and sing along. This is an affirming, life giving, and inspiring resource for the church."
—Chad Senuta, Associate for Youth and Young Adults, Episcopal Diocese of Chicago
