College & Young Adults

And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. – Philippians 1:6

We welcome those aged 18 – 30 into our church family. We want to walk alongside you in what may be years of transition through institutions of higher education and into the professional world. Our dedicated staff person, Danyel Johnson, has the title of Intern for Emerging Adult Ministry precisely because the years between 18 and 30 are ones of transition, change and growth. She is eager to connect and we are eager for you to find a home with us! Our co-associate rectors, Jonathan Warren and Tish Warren, also love being with 20- and 30-somethings and are always up for a coffee. Please reach out!

Community Groups and Ministry Teams

We hope young adults who come to our church find themselves at home. Community Groups are the best way for that to happen! Another way is by serving with one of our Ministry Teams.  We encourage you to participate fully in our parish life!

Ascension on Campus

If you are a college student at Pitt, we’d love for you to join us on campus! Ascension has a group at Pitt called Ascension Campus Fellowship (ACF). We hope to establish a similar group at CMU soon. ACF is a great way to connect with other students, grow in your faith, and discover what it means to be a Christian in college, as well as in your future vocation. Danyel would love to chat with you about ACF, college life, or anything else you’d like to talk about! She would also love to get you connected within the church, with community groups and ministry teams. To find out more about ACF, join us on Facebook: Ascension Campus Fellowship (PITT)

College Students on Sundays

Join us Sundays between services for conversation, coffee and food. This is a fun meet up time! We typically meet in the Old Catacombs (basement of the parish hall) around 10:30am. For more information, contact Danyel.

Young Adults : Post-grads and Professionals

If undergraduate days are in your rear view mirror, we’d love to have you join us for young adult events. Our co-Associate Rectors, Jonathan and Tish Warren, are in process of working with a small group of young adults to re-vision ministry with those roughly aged 22 through 30. Stay tuned to bulletin announcements as gatherings are already rolling out and ideas are taking shape.
