Community Exegesis
Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania

Teams are needed to perform a community exegesis of the unreached areas of the city. This is for the purpose of meeting people, identifying new needs and engaging possible ministry opportunities. In summary, church is looking to expand outside the borders of where they are currently reaching in their city and are looking for people from the outside to come in with a fresh perspective to help them identify those areas. Example of team activities: Go to a barber shop, get a haircut and talk to the people there. Go to a diner and engage both patrons and staff. Go door to door with community needs surveys. Stop by the local EMS houses and ask questions. Observe and hear what you can in the city. At the end of the day sit down with a team and unpack what you have learned. The host church has booklets through their State Convention that team would use to accomplish this and would be willing to send them ahead of time for review but will also take the time to go over with the team when they arrive in detail. Volunteers need to be self-starters, comfortable and willing to engage people in conversation. Team can sleep in the church, which has showers and a full kitchen team can use to prepare their meals. Local hotels are available as well if team prefers Note:  Teams working with children and youth will be responsible for conducting professional background checks on all members over the age of 18. Team leader will be sent information from BOM concerning options for this. (Can be combined with PA22-012; 014; 015; 016; 017)
