Mission Statement

We seek to provide opportunities for persons to act on their faith by assisting congregations in service ministry to their communities.

Description

MVS is Rooted in the spirit of Jesus, MVS invites people from a variety of backgrounds and ages to walk with people who are disadvantaged and suffering from injustice, participate in issues and activities of a local neighborhood and faith community, live simply in a shared household where relationships can be affirmed and nurtured and serve as an extension of a local congregation. MVS may also occasionally develop assignments in response to an individual's unique gifts, interests and objectives

Mennonite Voluntary Service strongly encourages two-year terms of service, although one-year terms are available. Assignments begin following an orientation (in January, August or September). Participants serving at least 12 months receive:

  • Room and board
  • Health insurance
  • A small monthly personal allowance
  • Student loan assistance

Participants also can earn up to 12 hours of college credit through several Mennonite colleges.
