Around the country, college students are beginning to move into dorms and start their classes for a new school year and campus ministries are preparing to welcome them.
One of the important ways that the church keeps its baptismal promise to support persons in their life in Christ, campus ministry is an investment in the leadership, life, and growth of the church, responding and engaging those young people in a crucial transitional place in their lives through the support of a peer community, sharing in regular worship, service, and learning together.
Take a look at the campus ministry database to find the closest Episcopal campus ministry to you.
