An experience in Haiti with YASC

An experience in Haiti with YASC

Ashley Bingaman, a music teacher from Virginia, served in Haiti from 2012-2014 with the Episcopal Church’s Young Adult Service Corps program, which provides opportunities for young adults (21-30) to minister with the Anglican Communion partners.

“We’re not called to go be the savior. We’re not called to go be the hero,” she says. “We are called to share Christ’s love and we are called to be in relationship.”

Thank you, Ashley. I’ve been teaching at Holy Trinity School of Music for 11 years, typically 1 to 4 weeks at a time. Those who commit for a solid year or more really make a deep impact. Thank you for the work and hopefully inspiring more people to do the work too. It is deeply rewarding.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
