Going to college?
We want to help you make the most of it.
It can be a time of incredible joy and discovery, but it can also be a time of intense loneliness and pain. Consider the following statistics:
There are around 20 million students studying in the United States (US Dept. of Education). About one million of these are international students (Opendoors, 2018).
60% of students raised in the church leave it during college (Barna).
The fastest growing religious group in the United States is the “nones” (Pew Research, 2017)
The task for a church then, as an emissary of Jesus Christ, is to be a stable presence; a place for loving, human connection; and a stronghold for spiritual formation during a tumultuous time. The pastoral need cannot be overstated. This is why churches in the Anglican Diocese of the Carolinas are working to reach students with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Please refer to our church locator map to see where are churches are in relation to the colleges across the state. The campus minister or Rector would love to know you are on campus!
