Applications available for Episcopal Church young adults seeking adventure, ministry, special calling
Applications for one-year assignments throughout the Anglican Communion are being accepted from young adults 21 30 years old for the Episcopal Church Young Adults Service Corps (YASC).
"We are seeking young adults who are looking for a challenging and transformational experience and want to be a part of what God is doing in the world," noted David Copley, Episcopal Church Mission Personnel Officer.
Known internationally as YASCers, the young adults provide service while learning about a new culture and work on vocation, all while providing a spiritual commitment.
Application deadline is January 6, 2011.
Applications are available here: www.episcopalchurch.org/yasc
The application seeks information on education, church involvement, interests and skills, employment information, placement and matching information, and references.
As part of the application process, applicants are invited to a discernment retreat, after which a committee matches gifts and interests with opportunities for YASCers to serve in over 20 countries around the world.
"YASC brings young adults into the life of the worldwide Anglican Communion and into the daily work of a local community," Copley noted.
