MCMC-logo-final-300x185The Presbytery of Detroit is inviting young adults (ages 18-30) to move to Detroit and serve a year in mission from Sept. 1, 2017 to Aug. 15, 2018 as part of a new opportunity called the Motor City Mission Corps. Through an intentional community model, young adult participants will live together, explore spiritual formation and vocational discernment, and work alongside four excellent site placement partners that are reducing blight and poverty in the city.

Those sites include. . .

1) Cass Community Social Services
2) Motor City Blight Busters
3) Presbyterian Villages of Michigan, and
4) Westminster Presbyterian Church of Detroit

The program is seeking 5-6 young adult participants for the first year of service. They will live together in shared housing on the grounds of Cass Community Social Services, and each participant will volunteer 30 hours per week with one of the presbytery’s site placement organizations. Housing, food and utilities will be covered as part of the program, and a monthly stipend will be provided for all participants. Some fundraising is required, and members of the presbytery team are prepared to assist participants in that process.

More information on Motor City Mission Corps is available here.

Application deadline is July 1.

The application for the program is available here. A flyer can be downloaded here.
