Young Adults
The Young Adult Outreach Task force was created by resolution at the 202nd Diocesan Convention to note existing young adult ministry in the Diocese of Ohio and make recommendations on how to increase outreach to 18-30 year olds. This task force held interviews, explored resources, and conducted research on a variety of topics including cultural trends, communications, college ministry, worship, short term ministry, stewardship, nominations, aging out of youth group, and intergenerational ministry.

This task force will next form teams to create concrete and specific resources to help participating parishes use and implement these recommendations. If you are interested in joining an implementation team, please contact the Rev. Anna Sutterisch.
