$133,000 has been awarded to 18 recipients of the Episcopal Church 2016 Young Adult and Campus Ministry grants.

Young Adult and Campus Ministry Grants provide funding for dioceses, congregations, and community college/tribal college/university campuses that are doing or seek to do ministry with young adults on and off college campuses.

“These grants help the Episcopal Church live into an expanding understanding of what it means to be in ministry with young adults on and off college campuses,” said the Rev. Shannon Kelly, Missioner for Young Adult and Campus Ministries. “This is a growing ministry, one that shows the church how to engage mission and the Jesus Movement in new, innovative ways. We are excited to be in partnership as these programs grow and develop over the next year.”

Two Leadership Grants and 16 Program Grants were awarded to 16 dioceses. Leadership Grants will start or reinvigorate young adult and campus ministry initiatives. Program Grants provide seed money to assist in the start-up of new and innovative campus ministries or to enhance a current initiative.
