Young Adult Episcopalians Ministry Network


Our focus is to support young adults (21-39) in the greater New Haven area and South Central Region in their faith formation, whether or not they attend church, through fellowship, bible study, monthly meals, trips and other activities.

Founded by the Episcopal Church at Yale as an extension of its campus ministry, YAE has been meeting monthly for two years. YAE’s Leadership Team consists of the Rev. Whitney Batson, Chris Gregorio, Josh Huber, Jenny Seibyl, and the Rev. Heidi Thorsen.

Meeting and Contact Information:


  • Regular Meetings: Bible studies on Zoom, Young Adult House Church, hikes, picnics, and other trips and projects as planned.
  • Leadership Team meets on Zoom, or at public locations in the greater New Haven area.
