In hindsight, Summer Staff is a difficult experience to describe in words and I can guarantee that the job description does it no justice. After the bulleted lines that tell you what tasks you may encounter during the summer, the packet should read “Get close to God and just enjoy the ride,” because it is a wild ride indeed.
I was tested physically and mentally while on Summer Staff. The hours were long and the work was at times quite exhausting; however, I have experienced no greater joy than serving God while on Summer Staff. Being around the strongest Christians I have ever met, during every waking moment, fostered growth in me that I had never experienced before. I have built friendships that will last the rest of my life. Jon Anderson, Summer Staff 2013 & 2014
Summer Staff is for college students who love middle and high-school students and have a heart for youth ministry. We are looking for dedicated young people who are committed to their faith and willing to serve Christ through a summer of service. As Summer Staff, you will have an opportunity to travel around the US for two months to many of the Fun in the Son and The Great Escape events. You will work hard and play hard, but the best part might just be the relationships you will develop over the course of the summer. Some of the tasks you will be involved with include helping with the set-up and break-down of the staging, sharing your testimony, leading recreation or small groups, and much more. Summer Staff members must have completed at least their freshman year of college or the equivalent, and all summer staffers raise their own financial support, a minimum of $2500. We welcome recommendations from youth workers for conference summer staff. If you know of any students that could fill any of these positions, please contact us!
