Members of the Campus Ministry Commission will soon be reaching out to college students and young adults in a new way with a weekly podcast starting April 13. The purpose of All Things … Episcopal is to create a platform to talk about our faith and to introduce some basics about the Episcopal Church, including why we do some of the things we do that may sometimes be a mystery (or even an obstacle) to those new to our denomination. The intended audience for this podcast is college students and young adults, especially those who may be coming from outside our faith tradition.
The Rev. David Kendrick — St John’s Episcopal Church, Springfield, the Rev. Collin Larimore — Grace Episcopal Church, Carthage, and Clare Stern-Burbano — Grace and Holy Trinity Cathedral, Kansas City host sessions that include conversations, interviews, and even an occasional sermon.
We want to introduce the Episcopal Church from multiple perspectives and with different voices, utilizing social media to find out what questions students may have about who we are and what we do. Guest speakers, including college students from around our diocese, are already being scheduled for future sessions.
We do not currently have a physical presence on college campuses in our diocese, but we think podcasting offers a great opportunity to meet young adults where they are and share our faith in a way that is personal, comfortable, and always accessible. We hope that these sessions will be a bridge to connect college students with local parishes and with other young adults.
