SWAP- Hindman Location Coordinators
MCC Appalachia's SWAP (Sharing With Appalachian People) program coordinates week-long service opportunities for young people and adults, to provide housing repair for low-income individuals and families. MCC is also looking to connect with other ministries related to economic development and/or food security and would welcome location coordinators with these interests and backgrounds. The Hindman Location Coordinators will report directly to the Appalachia Program Coordinator in all aspects of this assignment. These positions will plan and direct all aspects of the SWAP ministry in Hindman, Kentucky. Because of the SWAP partnership with the Hindman United Methodist Church this position necessitates involvement and worshipping with this partner church. Involvement with the Hindman Settlement School (another SWAP partner) is also expected. In the SWAP "off-season," this position may be developed in various ways depending on the gifts and interests of the applicants. LCs will help with promotions work along with other MCC staff.
