Episcopal Campus Ministries at VCU
Welcome VCU Students!
ECM at VCU has gone online for Fall of 2020
We encourage you to follow us on social media.
Volunteer Coordinator for Red Door Ministry
Isaiah joined the staff in 2020 and helps keep track of volunteer hours, reports data to Feed More, and engages with the VCU and Red Door Community weekly. Isaiah is a great addition to the team and has already been trained to be a “shopper” for FeedMore and helps Amber Weaver, our kitchen coordinator out in ways that are above and beyond his job. Isaiah is personable and always has a quiet smile on his face; keep an eye out for him on Fridays at Red Door Ministry.
Episcopal Campus Ministry
Julia has worked with ECM since 2018 and is a senior leader. She sings in the choir, serves as a chalice bearer and helps leads the children’s choirs on occasion. She coordinates music for Red Door on Fridays. Her summer 2020 project is to coordinate care packages for college students, develop a way to color together virtually, and have a game night so that we can all reconnect before school starts up again in August.
Turner is currently a Senior at VCU, working toward his degree in Computer Science. He is a graduate of the Collegiate School and attended William & Mary prior to attending VCU. A native Richmonder and life-long Episcopalian, Turner was baptized at St. Paul’s Richmond and as a youth attended St. Mary’s, Goochland, where he was confirmed. While in high school, he served as a Parish Youth Minister (PYM) at Shrine Mont, and as a page at the Diocesan Annual Convention. Turner has two brothers who live in San Francisco and his parents reside in the Richmond area. His mother, Rev. Amelie Wilmer, serves as the Rector of St. John’s Church in Church Hill, so he so he is already quite familiar with the inner workings of parish ministry! Turner enjoys music, good books, movies and festivals, and above all, spending time with family and close friends. He is excited to be bringing everyone together at Grace and Holy Trinity during this challenging time.

Living your faith
Students are invited to live into their faith, regardless of their religious tradition, by helping the community of Episcopal Campus Ministry at VCU live into their faith.
As Christians, we promise at baptism to:
- Continue in the apostles’ teaching, fellowship, breaking of bread and prayers.
- Persevere in resisting evil, and when we fall into sin, repenting and returning to the Lord.
- Proclaim by word and example the Good News of God in Christ.
- Seek and serve Christ in all persons loving our neighbors as ourselves.
- Strive for justice and peace among all people and respect the dignity of every human being.
The ECM at VCU looks different this fall!
