In order to make Trailhead a safe and welcoming space for all, we are requiring everyone to wear a mask at all indoor events, regardless of vaccination status.
An Episcopal Campus Ministry
"We are pilgrims on a journey. We are travelers on a road."
Throughout the ages, the Christian life has been described as a pilgrimage. We are a pilgrim people, journeying through this desert, wandering but not lost, towards the kingdom God has called us towards. Likewise, many have described the journey into the Anglican Tradition as “walking the Canterbury Trail”, itself an ancient and well-trod pilgrimage. We’ve had both these images in mind when conceiving St. Luke’s new student outreach ministry.
Our hope and prayer for this ministry is that it will become a safe, supportive, and inclusive community for students and young adults exploring worship in the Anglican Tradition. Whether St. Luke’s becomes a long-term spiritual home or is merely a stop along the way, our hope is to cultivate a space where students feel safe and empowered to ask questions, experience the beauty of liturgical worship, and find belonging in the Body of Christ.
Hello, my name is Ryan, and I'm the Young Adults Coordinator here at St. Luke's. I'm so very excited to welcome you to our church. Finding St. Luke's as a student at Lee quite literally altered the trajectory of my life, and It's my sincerest hope that you find here the same space to encounter the love of God that I've found.
A little about me: I'm a California-born, dog-owning, nature-loving, sandal-wearing, trail-running, introverted nerd. I have both my BA and MA in theology from Lee University. I believe that the best theologians are the people whose insight and examples help us to love God more.
I'm honored and humbled by this opportunity to help meet the spiritual and communal needs of students and young adults, and I can't wait to share in this journey together. Feel free to reach out; I'm more than happy to answer any questions you might have.
