The Gathering invites young adults (19-30 at the time of the Gathering) to serve as Servant Companions. Their primary responsibility would be to accompany congregational groups as they encounter and serve the people of Minneapolis during their Service Learning day. Applicants should be comfortable leading a group, thinking on their feet, and speaking about their faith. Servant companions will also help during some evening activities.
The Gathering is more committed than ever to reducing barriers to serving as a volunteer. This cycle, there is no application fee and participants selected to serve will receive round-trip airfare (or mileage reimbursement) to Minneapolis, per-diem, or catered meals while onsite, and shared lodging accommodations.
