Brendan’s Crossing is a program designed to help young adults discern the “voice” (life’s work) that is calling them, and to develop the skills required to listen and respond. It was born out of the Diocese of Southern Ohio and is a member of the Episcopal Service Corps and thus is Christ-focused with an “Episcopal Ethos” while remaining open to all regardless of background or affiliation.

Brendan’s Crossing welcomes single young adults between the ages of 21 and 35 with a desire to grow in faith, serve others, and to explore the spiritual and faith questions that bring meaning to life.

Brendan’s Crossing welcomes all and, as a result, forms a diverse community. We encourage young adults from all walks of faith and urge women, people of color, and LGBTQ young adults to apply.

Our 2019-20 program opens August 14th and ends May 21st (dates subject to change). 

Brendan’s Crossing uses a rolling deadline application format to accommodate those who need to plan early as well as those whose plans may take shape a bit later. We always love to hear from potential candidates.
