Diocesan Ministries - Young Adults Ministry Network

Young Adult Ministry Network

The dream of the Diocese of Washington is to see young people become a vital, contributing part of local worshiping communities. The Young Adult Ministries Network supports, resources and encourages those ministries to young people on campuses and in parishes. In addition, the network facilitates the development of new ministries that will minister to, and with, young people we are not yet reaching out to. From here, you can sign up on our e-mail list, find a parish or campus ministry, check on upcoming events. Feel free to contact us if there is anything else we can assist you with.

Young Adult Participation Survey

This summer, we are conducting a survey to capture the current state of young adult participation in congregations across our diocese. The results of this survey will be shared at the end of the summer and will be immensely helpful for our office in supporting your work with young adults. The survey will not take much of your time, so when you have a few minutes within the next week, please follow this link and answer each question to the best of your ability. Thank you!

Download the "Discerning for Young Adult Ministry" guide made available by the Episcopal Church Center.

Take a look at the collection of young adult Christian formation curriculum put together by the Episcopal organization Forma

Check out Animate.Faith, a 7-session video series put together by Sparkhouse, an ecumenical division of Augsburg Fortress.
