Agape House at San Diego State University
Agape House is an inclusive outreach for all on the campus of SDSU and with young adults in the wider San Diego area. In the spirit of Agape (the New Testament word for “self-transcending love”) we embody Jesus’ vision of “Beloved Community.” We support friendship in an open community of trust, offering hospitality, worship, spiritual growth, support for vocational discernment, leadership development, community service, recreation, small groups, retreats and cross-cultural immersion experiences.
Episcopal Service Corps
Episcopal Service Corps is a network of young adults ages 21-32 serving through locally organized intentional communities that are dedicated to:
- Serving others in solidarity
- Promoting justice in community
- Deepening spiritual awareness
- Discerning vocation
- Living simply
Everyone serving through ESC commits to a year of volunteer local service, as well as a household Rule of Life, regular spiritual direction, discernment and community practices. In return for volunteering, Corps members receive housing, health insurance, and small stipends to cover living expenses, transportation and food.
For many young adults, this year serves as an opportunity for vocational discernment broadly understood. Most of our participants move into positions of leadership within their local churches, the wider Episcopal Church, and community organizations.
Young Adult Service Corps
The Young Adult Service Corps is a ministry for Episcopalians ages 21-30 who are interested in exploring their faith in new ways by living and serving in communities around the world-wide Anglican Communion. Applicants must have a high degree of maturity and possess a faith commitment, the willingness to be a humble guest, and the ability to be an authentic companion.
