Diocesan Convention

The annual convention of the Episcopal Diocese of East Tennessee is the legislative body for the Diocese. Each year, parishes across East Tennessee send delegations to convention to consider resolutions, elect diocesan leadership, hear reports from diocesan committees and other working groups, pass the annual diocesan budget, and find inspiration and training from an array of in-person and online affinity groups and workshops.

Youth delegates

By order of our diocesan Constitution and Canons, three youth delegates "shall be ex-officio, admitted to seats upon the floor of the Convention, with all privileges except the right to vote" (Canon 3, Section 7).


Our Youth Delegates promote ETNyouth at the Ministry Fair and represent ETNyouth throughout the weekend.
