ELKHART, Ind. (Mennonite Mission Network) – For participants Joey Miller and Leah Rittenhouse, entering the Service Adventure program
was like coming home. Both Miller and Rittenhouse had been members of a Service Adventure unit once before, as children while their parents were leaders.
Miller, a member of Walnut Hill Mennonite Church
in Goshen, Ind., is currently serving as a maintenance worker at Johnstown (Pa.) Christian Schools
and living in community with two other young adults and a family in downtown Johnstown. From 2008-2009, Rittenhouse,
a member of Scottdale (Pa.) Mennonite Church
, worked at McKinnell House
, a homeless shelter, and was a participant in the Anchorage, Alaska unit.
Both Miller and Rittenhouse were shaped by their parents’ commitment to service.
