Saint John's School of Theology and Seminary recognizes that volunteer service leads to deep discernment about how we fit into the world and what we can do to help make it a better place. This program supports volunteers in service by walking along your service journey with you and introducing you to volunteers in other service organizations. It provides course content that will help you navigate and reflect on your experience in volunteer ministry at the margins of society.

My name is Taylor and I am currently serving as a Youth Minister through Jesuit Volunteer Corps Northwest. When I first heard about this program, I was excited for the unique opportunity to integrate the material we covered in class to my ministry. The material covered, the discussions, and the reflections have enriched my year. This class helped me be intentional in the way that I served and to grow as a minister. I have enjoyed learning more about pastoral ministry and implementing what I have learned at my service site.
