Timeframe: (typically) Early May to Aug 31
(there may be some shorter variations)
*Current need for September 2021 on... possibly through next summer? Any part of that would be helpful! Could be just room and not food or a roommate situation too. Talk to Heather about this specific situation.*
We are praying for hospitable Christian homes to welcome and provide room and board for our Summer Staff and HS LLT Students during our summer ministry season - OR - if your heart is more for hosting larger groups less often, we'd love to get to know folks who would be interested in hosting "family" style events.
More details below.
Sleeping & Eating
Everybody's got to do it. Host families ease the burden of a rigorous schedule by providing a home, specifically for our Summer Staff who are from out of town. While out on trips they don't get much down time, so to have a place of retreat when they're home is a huge blessing. We request that our staff not share a room with a host family member. If more than one staff member is placed in the same home, it's okay to have them share a room (while each having their own bed).
And eating... a person can only eat so much camp food, right? While our food is tasty, when Summer Staff are home they'll welcome a change in fare, and the opportunity to actually sit and eat it without their presence being required elsewhere.
Schedule & Expectations
Every year we have young people join us for a summer of ministry. Many are college students, and ages often range from 18-25 (18 is the minimum). We're looking for local homes, in the Canby area or as close to there as possible, as our Summer Staff from out of town often don't bring a vehicle. Depending on the particular Staff member's role, and the busyness of our trips, they may be around anywhere from most days to less than half the time.
