Hurdling Handicaps Speaking Ministry is looking for volunteer ministry partners known as the Great Getaway Missionary (GGM) for the 2024 Great Getaway Family Retreat in Grass Lake, MI.
As a GGM, you'll be part of THE GREAT GETAWAY GANG, serving families affected by disabilities through Christ-like encouragement and friendship.
GGMs generally serve as "Getaway Guides" to our campers with a disability, accompanying them on adventures throughout the day and joining the family for meals. GGMs are age 16 and up. Junior GGMs (age 12-15) can come with a responsible adult (parent, friend from church) to serve for the week.
Each attendee with a disability is prayerfully matched with a GGM for the week. You will help care for your family's unique needs while allowing parents/care providers and siblings an opportunity to enjoy activities designed just for them. You'll receive on-site training Sunday and Monday before the families arrive Monday afternoon, so there's no need to worry about a lack of experience!
GGMs are also needed for support roles, such as:
golf cart drivers
cafe/snack shop assistant
talent show stage manager
Our goal is to enable our families to experience the love of Christ through a fun-filled week of activities, friendships, and encouraging messages with your assistance.
If you love God and love others, and want to put that love to tangible use, then the Hurdling Handicaps Great Getaway is the place for you!
