What is your ideal landscape to live in and explore for an entire summer or winter? Hiking two hundred miles in Glacier? Cliff jumping in Crater Lake? Boating on Lake Powell? A Christian Ministry in the National Parks (ACMNP) combines your love for the outdoors and a desire to grow as a Christian leader by ministering to those who live in and visit America's national parks. While working a full-time job in a national park (which we help you secure), you have an entire summer or winter to explore, hike, kayak or climb with like-minded people you also live and work with. ACMNP differentiates from just any national park job by equipping leaders and supporting them as they focus on relational ministry and lead interdenominational worship services every week in America's most incredible landscapes. You will not only earn a paycheck and explore a new landscape for 3-4 months, but are prepared for and encouraged to grow as a servant leader throughout your experience. You will go from friends to family with the ACMNP team you are placed with in the park, while also learning from new cultures working with international students from all over the globe. Through worship services on Sunday and relational ministry opportunities with co-workers and guests throughout the week, you are empowered to cultivate a Christian community within the park you were called to serve. When you are not working or leading worship services, the adventures you can take part in are unlimited. We encourage you to take co-workers on road trips, climb with the locals, kayak on glacial lakes, and hike with National Park Service employees.
ACMNP team members will not only be enriched personally, but will play a role in the impact of thousands of people that work in and visit the National Parks of America. As we prayerfully consider where and with whom you serve, each team member is then encouraged to make as much of this experience as they can! Candidates must be...
