Please join us for this annual celebration of our Friends who make the mission of Good Earth Village possible through their faithful generosity! 

5:00 PM Doors open
5:30 PM Welcome and Dinner
6:15-7:00 PM Program: Campers and YAGM Panel

At Good Earth Village we “grow Christian leaders who go out and change the world.” At this year’s Friends Picnic, we will meet some of our staff affiliated with the ELCA’s Young Adults in Global Mission program, or YAGM. Among this summer’s staff, we have three individuals who served YAGM, and two who will leave for YAGM at the conclusion of our summer season; additionally, a four-year summer staff (2015-2018) will also leave to serve in YAGM this August.

See our mission in action! GEV Program Director, Hannah Loeffler-Kemp (YAGM ‘16-’17), will lead a panel to include Lars Anderson (YAGM ‘17-’18), Grant Holsinger (YAGM ‘18-’19), Lee Hanson (YAGM ‘19-’20), and Sam Wright (YAGM ‘19-’20). Learn more about how serving in outdoor ministry equips young people to serve a global mission.

About Young Adults in Global Mission

A year of service through the Young Adults in Global Mission program invites young adults into an international year of service, supporting ministries and projects in communities all over the world. It also invites volunteers into a journey of self-reflection, providing space to consider their own identity, God’s work in the world, and their place within it all. Young adults serve in the spirit of accompaniment, walking alongside global companions in a manner that practices mutuality, interdependence and solidarity. Read more…
