On Oct. 10, 2016, the application period for Lutheran Young Adult Corps will open for the first time. Young adults aged 18-26 from across the country may apply to serve in under-resourced communities for 10 weeks in the summer or 10 months through the school year.
The new ministry for young people ages 18 to 26 offers placements of 10 weeks or 10 months in Boston, New Orleans and St. Louis.
The opportunities for servant events specifically designed for young adults age 18-30 are growing. Recently a group of young adults in St. Louis gathered to serve in their own backyard and helped congregations and RSOs prepare for sharing the Gospel.
Over 900 young adults apply to volunteer at the LCMS Youth Gathering this summer. Time and time again the young adults of the LCMS have shown a willingness and excitement to serve others in Christ alone. New opportunities are coming soon for young adults to not just volunteer but become neighbors and friends in communities of need in Jesus’ name.
The Rev. Mark Kiessling and Julianna Shults, LCMS Office of National Mission, discuss the development of the new Lutheran Young Adult Corps. The Corps provides 2-10 month opportunities to serve for adults ages 18-26.
