The Diocese of Ohio is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion represented in the United States by The Episcopal Church.
The Episcopal Church of Ohio ministers in our Church and in our communities in many inspiring ways.
The Young Adult Outreach Task force was created by resolution at the 202nd Diocesan Convention to note existing young adult ministry in the Diocese of Ohio and make recommendations on how to increase outreach to 18-30 year olds. This task force held interviews, explored resources, and conducted research on a variety of topics including cultural trends, communications, college ministry, worship, short term ministry, stewardship, nominations, aging out of youth group, and intergenerational ministry.

As College students enter a new context and self-differentiate from their childhood identity, many are prone to "lose" or stray from their faith and spiritual lives. Others have not had a chance to explore spiritual practices, expressions of faith, or particular traditions. The Episcopal Church is well equipped to spread the Gospel: that God loves you, no exceptions. Studies have also shown that college students are attracted to the theological tenants and worship experiences the Episcopal Church has to offer. This grant will provide funding for parishes to explore and experiment in unique opportunities to enter boldly and generously into the lives of their college-aged neighbors.
Young Adult Formation Grants are micro-grants used to support parishes in making changes to their worship, programming, and community outreach in ways that will attract multiple generations, especially young adults.
