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.
