Following God’s call to creatively serve the diverse needs and interests of older adults by developing opportunities and collaborative relationships.

Landis Communities offers a Speakers Resource Listing to serve church and community groups. Landis Communities’ team members are available at no cost to present on a variety of topics. Speakers who are not Landis Communities employees may require honoraria for services. For more information, contact Larry Guengerich at LGuengerich@landiscommunities.org, or 717-381-3526. 


In addition, we also have a partnership with Everence and their End-of-life curriculum.  Please see here for more information on that.
