Description

Corps members serve up to 32 hours in one of our partner non-profit organizations, Monday-Thursday. These potentially include Kingdom House (kingdomhouse.org) , Grace Hill Settlement House (gracehillsettlement.org), Missouri Health Care for All (missourihealthcareforall.org), Rockwell House Campus Ministry (rockwellhouse.org) and The Haven of Grace (havenofgracestl.org). Corps members are placed during the interview process prior to arriving.

Corps members live in intentional community with other members and pray together regularly. This program is based in Benedictine Spirituality and corps members create a Rule of Life together upon arrival. Fridays are spent in personal, vocational, and spiritual development as a community. Corps members spend two weeknights a month in our Jesus and Empire course, a look at Jesus as a political revolutionary and the ways in which Empire still affects our world today and how we can combat it and fight for a just world. Occasional other weeknights are spent engaging the community and neighborhood, as well as connecting with other young adults in the Episcopal Diocese of Missouri or in other service corps.
