Spiritual Communities

Vision Statement

Vision Statement

We envision a spiritual community for young adults between the ages of eighteen and twenty-five who are in the midst of transitioning from adolescence into adulthood. This includes but is not limited to students from the University of Louisville, Bellarmine University, Jefferson Community College and young adults in this age group who are not currently taking classes.

Emergent adulthood is a critical period for meaning making and faith development. It is during these years that individuals establish the value systems that carry them throughout adulthood.  This age group is exemplified by critical thinkers who are seeking meaning in their lives and who are in need of a safe space for exploring questions of faith. During the transition between adolescence and adulthood, this population seeks authentic community as they redefine family relationships, experience life crises, explore questions of vocation, and engage in identity formation. This age group is deeply spiritual, but may not understand how to engage in spiritual practices which have been informed by the Reformed Tradition. It is a group in need of mentoring. The cohort is part of a generation who values meaningful actions and making a difference in the world. It is vital for the church to equip young adults to live out their emerging values in Christian community, so that they can create, shape and sustain the Church as we move into a new age.
