MINISTRY OPPORTUNITY in National Parks, Summer 2021

A Christian Ministry in the National Parks (ACMNP) sends teams during the summer and winter months to parks across the US & Canada where teams work and lead ministry efforts in a park community. We were blessed to send 150+ team members to parks this past summer and have 30+ folks serving in the parks this winter!

Seminarian participants or those pursuing a graduate degree in a ministry related field gain the experience of leading one of these ministry teams, preparing worship services, learning how to empower others in ministry, completing administrative duties, engaging with international coworkers and tourists, and caring for fellow team members and employees. In addition to earning an income, ACMNP scholarships these individuals with a $2,000 educational award because we believe in helping students gain practical ministry experience before they graduate.
