Summer Service stories
Through Summer Service, a short-term leadership development program of MCC U.S., young adults from diverse ethnic backgrounds use their passions and talents to serve their communities.
Many children who were part of the summer day camp at Calvary Community Church, Hampton, Va., were excited to learn about earning interest on their money. They began begging their parents to open saving accounts for them.This kind of success story puts a smile on the face of Summer Service worker, Eboni Gibson of Hampton, Va.
MCC Central States Region had 7 young adults, in the summer of 2010, serving in local communities in Texas, Louisiana, Montana and Mississippi.
Using his high energy, Chris Collier spent part of his summer as "Captain Chris," organizer of a Vacation Bible School in Chicago. MCC's Summer Service Worker program gave Collier the opportunity to not only engage the children in his community, but to develop leadership skills through planning, organizing and working with volunteers.
Summer Service participant Delilah Isaak shares what she learned at the GAP (Global Anabaptist Peacebuilders) Institute and how it influenced her and her husband Brad's summer service projects, partnering with MCC as they started a children's ministry and food bank at their new church.
