Twenty-eight young adults from 24 Episcopal Church dioceses will be serving as missionaries in the Young Adult Service Corps (YASC) for the 2013-2014 term in locales throughout the Anglican Communion, including 19 new ministries.

This year’s group of missionaries boasts the largest number of YASC volunteers ever, including three returnees as well as two representing Province IX for the first time in the program.

YASC is a ministry for Episcopal young adults, ages 21 – 30, who are interested in exploring their faith in new ways by living and serving in communities around the Anglican Communion.

The Rev. David Copley, Mission Personnel Officer, noted that while the day-to-day duties of each placement vary, the experiences of the YASCers are life-changing.  “YASC brings young adults into the life of the worldwide Anglican Communion and into the daily work of a local community,” he explained.
