Young Adult Service Corps Blogs

The Young Adult Service Corps (YASC) is a ministry for those interested in exploring their faith in new ways by living and serving in communities around the Anglican Communion. YASC offers young adults a unique opportunity to be an active part of what God is doing in the world.

Check out what the current corps members are saying about their experiences abroad.

My name is Paul Daniels, II. I am a native born North Carolinian who will be spending a year in Grahamstown, South Africa working at the Anglican Cathedral of Grahamstown. I moved to Boston, MA to live in intentional faith community with the Life Together Community to discern a call to the Episcopal Priesthood and dedicate myself to a year of social justice and serving an urban Episcopal parish in Lynn, MA. I am deeply interested in Christian Spirituality and the oneness of God and humanity. I believe in peace and mutuality, and that oneness with God becomes real when we learn to live peaceably with ourselves and each other.
