Holden Village is a center for renewal, a Lutheran ministry welcoming all people into the wilderness to be called, equipped and sent by God. The center of our lives is the Good News of Jesus Christ, which opens us to ourselves, each other and all the issues facing humankind.
Holden is volunteers : Everyone gets to claim Holden as their own through volunteer opportunities. Volunteer staff play a large part in creating a place of welcome, celebration and hilarity in all aspects of Village life. The staff supports this retreat by cooking meals, cleaning lodges, doing laundry, staffing the bookstore, pool hall, and snack bar, etc. Holden is able to offer reasonable rates to all who come here because of the dedicated volunteers and donors who support this ministry of hospitality.
Our staff includes Short-Term Volunteers who work from three weeks to six months and Long-Term Staff who choose to make a one-year commitment. The majority of our volunteers are needed between April and October, but we also have openings throughout the year. Included in our short-term volunteer needs are Short-Term Area Heads and Summer Area Heads.
