Campus Ministries



Transitioning out of high school can be hard. EYCDIOATL supports all of our young adults, whether they pursue a degree or other vocational paths.  We want to give every person a way to stay connected during this important phase of life. 

The Diocese of Atlanta Campus Ministries consists of several campuses throughout the University System of Georgia. At each of these campuses, missioners are in place to support our students emotionally and spiritually as they navigate post-high school life. Check below for a missioner near you or, if you have any questions, contact the Rev. Clayton Harrington (Dean of Diocesan Campus Ministries).

College students need support from their faith community as they navigate adulthood for the first time. The vital work of campus ministries would not exist without these dedicated missioners.

campus retreat

A great way to stay connected is to attend our Campus Ministry Retreat. Each February, we bring our young adults (18-24 yrs) and campus missioners together for a retreat that includes small groups, self-reflection, great food, and plenty of free time. The weekend is led entirely by young adults that serve on our Retreat Design Team.
