The Community of Shiloh comprises Resident Members, Non-Resident Associates, Associates at Large, and Volunteers. All are family and extended family!
Our resident community members and associates represent a truly
diverse spectrum of backgrounds. Each of us shares
one common vision - and the essence of that vision is found in the book of
Ephesians Chapter 1:17-23:
Our Resident Members, both Permanent and Candidates on probation, range in age from their 40's through 90's. Members live and work within the community, are furnished comfortable living quarters - some private residences for married couples and families, some private rooms with shared bathrooms, kitchens, and common areas for singles. Members are furnished all meals - some meals shared community-wide, some group-shared, others taken privately. Members receive a personal allowance for incidentals. Members are required to attend daily and weekly scheduled community meetings, and Sunday church services. Candidates serve a 12 to 36 month probationary period, after which they may apply for Permanent Membership.
Our Non-Resident Associates and supporters live adjacent to our community, work either within or outside the community, share some community meals, and attend some community meetings and services. Many Associates at Large are supporters, former Resident Members and Volunteers who frequently visit and maintain on-going contact with the community and its projects.
