San Antoniohttps://www.mennonitemission.net/Serve/units/mennonite voluntary service/San AntonioSan AntonioTexas<p> <strong>Join a community.</strong> An expansive cityscape, San Antonio is the perfect blend of large city and small town. The city is full of energy, culture and fun, but also provides smaller communities to jump into. For MVSers, church and community easily become one in the same. </p><p>The bus system and bike rentals provide easy ways to experience the rich Mexican and Latino culture as well as a lively arts district, downtown, the historic missions, and the famous Riverwalk. Year-round festivals, the annual Fiesta celebration, the Spurs, and beautiful warm weather ensure plenty of entertainment. San Antonio is also located conveniently within day trip distance of unique parks, lakes, and rivers, the capital (Austin) and interesting little towns.  </p><p> </p><p><strong>Join a congregation.</strong> A small but committed congregation, San Antonio Mennonite Church is a group of Anabaptist believers that provides a place for everyone. MVSers are invited to integrate fully by sharing their gifts, strengthening leadership skills, and participating in social events.</p><p>The congregation comes from different backgrounds and experiences, including many former MVSers. It is "an open and affirming congregation, welcoming into the full life and ministry of the church persons of every race, immigration status, culture, age, gender, sexual orientation, ability, and economic status who seek to join us in following Jesus." As such, many church members advocate for immigration reform, education, and economic equality through their work and their lives. </p><p> </p><p><strong>Join a cause.</strong> San Antonio hosts many nonprofits; from large national organizations to smaller grassroots community movements. Some placements include RAICES, a non-profit law firm that advocates for immigrants and resettles refugees, Catholic Charities, a health and human services organization, as well as educational and homeless programs.  No matter where you choose to serve, you'll be engaged with real issues, impacting real lives. </p>
