About the Ministry
Why do we serve?
Knowing that God has blessed us by calling us into relationship with Him through Jesus Christ, we seek to glorify God and make Jesus known by giving our time, energy and talents to serve and be a blessing to others. We find that as we serve in this way, we experience great joy from the Lord as we work beside friends both new and old.
"So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith." Galatians 6:10 (ESV)
Having recreational vehicles allow us to serve in a unique way, being able to "move into" an area to serve without placing a burden on the ministries or communities we are trying to help.
How is a service trip structured?
Each service opportunity usually lasts at least one week and is organized around several RVs gathering together in a camping area at or near the ministry or community being served.
We usually begin the day with a short devotional and prayer time and then work from 9a-4p with an hour for lunch. We take breaks during the day and adjust work times as conditions require, encouraging everyone to not be tempted to work beyond their physical ability. We try to have the evening meal together and then enjoy some fellowship time afterward.
Each service location is different, so the daily schedule will flex to meet the needs of that ministry. We invite you to take a look at our current opportunities to see the specific details of the trips we offer.
Where do we serve?
We regularly serve at Christian camping ministries including the PCA's Ridge Haven in Brevard, NC and Camp Westminster in Conyers, GA. These locations typically offer full hookup campsites and the ability to create a group meeting and shared meal area.
In addition, we support the MNA Disaster Response ministry by regularly volunteering at the warehouse facility in Rome, GA. We fit RVs into the large parking lot and enjoy a more "urban" camping experience while serving together.
We are constantly pursuing new and varied opportunities. Take a look at our trips currently planned and also find links to learn more about the places we serve.
What type of work is done?
The services we provide include light construction, carpentry, grounds work, building and equipment maintenance, painting, debris removal, housekeeping, meal preparation and more. Specialized skills such as electrical or plumbing are always valuable. Even if you do not consider yourself skilled in any of these areas, we always work as a team, so there are ways to contribute regardless of your skill or experience level. It's also a great way to develop skills and grow in your comfort level with this type of work.
With a servants heart, you can still contribute, be a blessing and receive a blessing. We welcome adult volunteers of all ages. Though most of our volunteers are retired, working age folks with RVs can find great joy and satisfaction in donating vacation time to serve as well.
