Mission and Tourism Key Leader

published 2/25/2020

At General Conference 2020 there will be nearly 2,000 people with specific roles and responsibilities to the event which will keep them very busy during the 10 days of the gathering. There will also be thousands of people attending as observers whose time is more flexible. We would like to offer these people opportunities to see more of the area and to be able to lend a hand at local charities. Most outings would be for small groups (10-12 people at a time).

The Host Committee is looking for a key leader who will coordinate all aspects of these opportunities. This person will function as a member of the City Services Team led by Kent Johnson. This is a volunteer role.

This person will coordinate two types of small group outings for guests of the 2020 General Conference. 

  • Mission and Service Activities – these will be opportunities for people to serve at local agencies: Simpson Shelter, Feed My Starving Children, Sharing and Caring Hands, Second Harvest Food Shelf, etc.
  • Local tourism – opportunities for people to see more of the area than the convention center. Options might include bus tours, walking tours, chain of lakes, Paisley Park, St Paul/Capital, Arboretum, Lake Minnetonka, river cruise, etc.
Coordinator will seek out opportunities, schedule activities, arrange transportation, coordinate registration, promotion, and collect fees as necessary.

Our hope is that there might be one outing offered each day of General Conference.


  • Knowledge of local mission and service opportunities
  • Knowledge of local tourism opportunities
  • Able to attend to details
  • Must sign a covenant
