If you are 18 to 24, graduated or graduating from High School, and wondering what God has planned for you, I have an opportunity for you!
CrossTimbers Children’s Missions Adventure Camp is looking for Christian men and women to be summer missionaries serving kids and sponsors at the Davis or Grove locations!
As a summer missionary, you will have the opportunity to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with kids and sponsors multiple times every day in all kinds of settings. You could serve on our Lifeguard Team as campers swim, boat, try to make it to the end of the “wipe out” or summit the icebergs! You could prepare delicious meals for campers with the Caf Staff!
Equip kids to conquer the ropes course, rock wall and zip line on the Ropes Team. Run the range where campers can shoot arrows, paint balls, sling shots and BB guns on the Target Sports Team. The Missions Team shows campers how they can be missionaries, through hands-on mission experiences, crafts and tastes. Our Worship Team is comprised of staff from every team who have skill in leading worship.
In every area, campers will see and hear how their experience from that day can remind them of what God has done for them and what they can do about it.
Each session, a different camp pastor will teach campers and staff about what the Bible says and how it applies to our lives. Our theme this year is “I MUST” from John 3:30, “He must increase, but I must decrease.” We will work through what it means to become a Christian and how, as we grow in Christ, we become more like Him and less like our old sinful self.
Staff will lead camp-wide games and facilitate a block party.
Each night after worship, every staffer will have the opportunity to build relationships with campers through tribe time. This is when campers who are from different churches but who are the same grade and gender talk over the day. It always amazes me how God uses the experiences of our staff to minister to kids who are going through similar things.
Will it be easy? No. Is it hard work? Yes. Is it for everyone? No.
Don’t worry, we will train you in your area of service, teach you how to engage kids with the Gospel well, and invest in you spiritually.
While serving at camp may be long hours, hard work, exhausting and hot, it is also one of the most rewarding jobs you may ever have! You will make lifelong friends from the staff. You will be equipped and trained to share the Gospel not only at camp but when you get home. You will see hundreds of kids trust in Jesus. Kids will adjust their lives to be more like Christ. Some will even recognize God’s calling on their life.
God may even change you.
Go to crosstimbers.org/serve if you are interested in applying to be a part of CrossTimbers.
All new Staff will report to the Davis Campground on May 19 for 10 days of team training, worship and discipleship. Camp sessions are June and July. Room and board plus pay is provided.
How will God use YOU this summer?
John 3:30, “He must increase, but I must decrease.”
