Transitioning into college is hard – really hard. We support all of our young adults whether they choose to go to college or do something else. The Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta believes in giving every young adult the best opportunity to stay connected during this transition. Campus Missioners are here to help guide young adults during this new phase of life. Meet our newest Campus Missioners.
