You will lead communities of volunteers from all over the country in their mission work (either Day Camp or Service Project) and spiritual practices such as worships and devotionals.

Summer staff is for the passionate and compassionate. The intentional investors and the Kingdom advancers. The beautifully broken and the community builders. The legacy leavers and Mountain lovers. Summer staff is all about living out the Gospel by serving others. Does this sound like something for you? We’re looking for individuals who are:

  • Faithful followers of Jesus, willing to bring their ministry and leadership experience to the Mountain.

  • Eager to manifest the Gospel in word and action across the seven counties of our service area.

  • Committed to growing spiritually and professionally.
