DOOR staff member Justin Chambers has announced that he will conclude his service with DOOR at the end of December 2016.
In his two years on staff with DOOR, Chambers has served as the National Recruitment Associate and as Atlanta Assistant City Director. As the National Recruitment Associate, Chambers shared DOOR’s stories and programs with people interested in an experience that combines faith, service, and learning. Chambers talked to leaders of youth, college, and church groups about the weeklong Discover program. He also engaged young adults at colleges and churches across the country interested in a year of service in conversations about the yearlong Dwell program, where they could discern God’s call in their lives while engaging spiritual development, social justice, and intentional community. In addition to working closely with DOOR’s denominational partners, Mennonite Mission Network and the Young Adult Volunteers program of Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), Chambers sought out and developed relationships with new national and local partners.
As Atlanta Assistant City Director, Chambers had an impact on all of Atlanta’s programs. He regularly shared his story with visiting weeklong Discover groups. Chambers spent time getting to know the summer Discern participants and yearlong Dwellers, often engaging their deep conversations during community night outings.
Chambers first came to DOOR as a weeklong Discover participant as part of a college spring break service trip. That experience led him to apply for Dwell where he served at Mercy Church in Atlanta. After completing two years of Dwell, Chambers was hired as a full time staff member at DOOR.
DOOR thanks Chambers for his years of dedicated service and wishes him well in his next ventures.
