Episcopal Campus Ministry @ Christ Church Youth Room
Oct 11 @ 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM

Episcopal Campus Ministry (ECM) strives to offer deeper experiences in the faith journeys of college students through worship, fellowship, and vocational discernment. ECM is a lively place for mentoring the Christian formation of both seekers and those who grew up in Episcopal churches. At weekly ECM meetings, students are recognized, challenged, supported, inspired and engaged in honest dialogue around their faith in order to foster their potential. We provide a culture where students can imagine and explore new possibilities for ministry. These imagined possibilities are necessary for the continued vitality of the church and for God’s mission in the world. Through campus ministry, we equip students with the tools for facing the tough ethical, moral, religious, relational and ecological challenges of a complex world.
