Episode Description:

BV 11-12 Brethren Volunteer Service - Intentional Community Houses

During the past 63 years, . . . . . . . . . . . .
over 7,000 Brethren Volunteer Service workers have attemp;ted to provide solutions to some of the world's deeply rooted problems and by doing so, have had life changing experience.

On any given day, 1000 BVS'ers are volunteering at projects in this country and in 16 countries around the world.

Since 2009, Brethren Volunteer Service has created Intentional Community Houses for volunteers at three different locations in this country; Elgin, Illinois; Cincinnati, Ohio and Portland, Oregon.

These projects offer volunteers a community living experience where they actually live together, eat together and practie conflict resolution. It sounds like a family, doesn't it? While living in community, they volunteer with local organizations that are serving to meet the needs of the nearby community.

This edition of "Brethren Voices," hosted by Brent Carlson, features five volunteers who have been the first to serve in the Portland project during the past year. Members of the congregation provide insight about how a small church was able to do planning and bring this to a reality as part of Portland Peace Church of the Brethren's community ministry.
