Volunteers are Vital

to the Ministry of Deer Run

We Love Our Volunteers!

Are you interested in donating your gifts, time, and passions to care for our property, build and repair facilities, serve our guests and campers, and be involved in community or family events?

Then, we would love for you and your family, friends, community group, or co-workers to be a part of the Deer Run family by volunteering alongside our team members!

Whether you love being behind the scenes or connecting with people as a frontline volunteer, we have numerous year-round volunteer opportunities for you! You can volunteer for a couple hours, a day, a week, or more.

“Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.” 1 Peter 4:10

Join Us for 2022 Volunteer Spring Serve Day!

Saturday, April 23, 2022 • 8:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.

This annual post-winter volunteer work day is vital to cleaning up debris from winds so the property looks gorgeous for retreat groups and summer camps! We have numerous projects: removing fallen trees on the property, repairing trails, spreading pine straw/wood chips, lining trails with deadfall, and leveling uneven paths.

Bring work gloves and wear shoes that can get dirty.

Volunteers must be age 8 and up. Youth ages 8 to 18 must be supervised by an adult volunteer; 1 adult for every 6 youth.

Schedule: Serve the full day or a half day (a.m. or p.m.)
Full Day — 8:00am to 4:00pm
Morning — 8:00am to 11:30am
Lunch provided for everyone — 11:30am to 12:30pm
Afternoon — 12:30pm to 4:00pm
