Join a community. The Jubilee House, which hosts the Elkhart MVS unit, is located in a racially and economically diverse neighborhood. MVSers enjoy this diverse community, as well as the network of former MVSers who now call Elkhart home. Participants are able to take advantage of the public transportation system and a 10-mile bike trail, which begins near the Jubilee House, connecting participants to nearby Goshen, Ind.

Join a congregation. The unit is supported by two congregations less than a mile away: Prairie Street Mennonite Church and Fellowship of Hope Mennonite Church. Also within walking distance is Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary, which lends itself to in-depth discussion about how faith influences all parts of life. 

Prairie Street Mennonite Church is dedicated to its surrounding community.  They reach out to the local Latino community through a developing translation program, and an ESL program that is hosted at the church six months during the year. Many PSMC members are involved in community action and have attended the nearby seminary.

Fellowship of Hope Mennonite Church offers a strong sense of community that derived from their historical beginning as an intentional community with a common purse. The 30 people who gather each Sunday have a strong commitment to work for peace and justice both in their homes and communities as well as in other parts of the world.

Join a cause. Elkhart is a great place for those exploring social work or peace and justice, but has a wide variety of other opportunities. Due to the racial, economic and theological diversity found in Elkhart, volunteers should have a heart for building community and connections across many differences.
