Volunteer with International Family Retreats!


Joni and Friends offers hope and love to families affected by disability through International Family Retreats!

Come serve alongside local churches to help families experience acceptance and the life-changing message of the Gospel in a safe and accessible camp environment. All volunteers are given an opportunity to use their gifts and skillsets to empower the local church and people affected by disability at the retreat. We’re looking for disability specialists, health professionals, photographers, pastors or speakers, students, disability ministry volunteers or those who simply have a passion to serve. Training is provided, no prior experience required. Come ready to experience an environment that is often described as “a little slice of heaven on earth”!

“Just go! Those with disabilities need to know they are loved, accepted, have worth, value, and a purpose.” – Lari

Be part of the movement God is igniting amongst the disability community in 15 different countries. Registration to volunteer is now open!
