St. Mark’s is committed to bringing all people to a transformative relationship with Christ, through diverse and creative worship, education, and ministry. This is clearly evident in the Youth Ministry program. Through weekly programming and numerous events throughout the year we seek to create an inclusive, hospitable, compassionate, and nurturing community where youth from all backgrounds share relationships that can grow into the full stature of Christ. They will be empowered for ministry in their daily life; and by practicing mutual accountability through creative Christian formation programs, participate meaningfully in ministries, missions, and outreach in the San Antonio community and beyond.
Wednesday Night Fellowship (WNF)

Wednesday Night Fellowship (WNF) is for youth in 6th-12th grade and meets each Wednesday during the program year from 6.15-8.00pm in the Youth Suite. Come to a safe place where you can be yourself, be the Episcopal church now, and have a blast with other youth. Dinner will begin at 6.15pm in the Youth Suite, provided by Café Kairos. Our discussion and worship time will start at 6.45pm.
Weaving god's promises
September 16, 2018 - May 12, 2019.
This is a three-year Christian education curriculum developed and written exclusively for the Episcopal Church. All 6th-12th graders will come together every Sunday morning during the formation hour in the Youth Suite. We will utilize activities, prayer, and fellowship to learn how God’s promises of salvation are inextricably woven into our lives.
Followership (9th-12th grades)
Followership is a brand new offering for youth in 9th-12th grade. This group will meet on the second Tuesday of each month during the program year from 5.30-7.00pm in the Las Almas building at Los Patios (2015 NE Interstate 410 Loop, 78217). The dates for this year will be: September 11, October 9, November 13, December 11, January 8, February 12, April 9, and May 14. Dinner will begin at 5.30pm and afterwards we will be using the Little Books of Guidance series to help discuss life’s big questions and how we can best be followers of Jesus.
Volunteer with the Youth
The youth of St. Mark’s are not only the future of the church, but they are also the present. Please help serve them and help them grow with your presence through relationship. All who work with youth must have been through Safeguarding God’s Children within the last five years. We have opportunities to volunteer Wednesday evenings, Sunday mornings, Tuesday evenings, and at retreats and events throughout the year. Email Meredith at with your interest in volunteering with our fantastic youth.
