Ministry Summer Service

What is Ministry Summer Service?

MSS is a leadership development program for college students in the Church of the Brethren who spend 10 weeks of summer working in the church (local congregation, district office, camp, or national program).

Why Ministry Summer Service?

Congregations may ask, “Why should we take on a summer intern?” Young adults may ask, “Why should we work for the church for a whole summer?”

The answer has to do with God’s call. The Bible is a record of God calling people to challenging tasks. MSS is no exception. Through MSS, God is calling congregations to reach out in the ministry of teaching and receiving. God is calling young adults to explore the possibility of church work as their vocation.

Applications are due JANUARY 6, 2017!


Youth Peace Team

The members of the Youth Peace Travel Team travel to camps across the denomination, teaching about peace, justice, and reconciliation. The group also gives peace programs at a variety of camps and conferences over the summer. The goal of the team’s work is to talk with other young people about the Christian message and the Brethren tradition of peacemaking.

College age Church of the Brethren young adults (19 – 22 yrs.) will be selected for the next team. A stipend is paid to team members.

Applications are due JANUARY 6, 2017!
