This Will Last Forever
A Christian Ministry in the National Parks embodies and extends the ministry of Jesus Christ through worship, witness, and the development of Christian leaders. We seek to provide Christian community for the people working in, living in, and visiting the national parks. Our team members lead weekly worship services, work full-time seasonal hospitality jobs, and engage in relational ministry in the parks.
Once you apply and are selected to serve with ACMNP, we help you secure employment in the park you have been intentionally placed in. We are not the employer, but a non-profit ministry that connects our team members to jobs within national park concessionaires.Typically, our teams work in fast-paced hospitality-type jobs in the heart of a national park in order to provide relational ministry to those far from any Christian community. Our trusted relationship with park employers has made ACMNP possible since 1951!
ACMNP team members work full-time, seasonal jobs in national parks across the United States. Not only do you earn a paycheck, live and eat on property, but may be offered other benefits within the individual company. Dependent on the location, you could receive discounts on tours, boat rentals, and in shops and restaurants!
We are looking for mature, committed followers of Jesus Christ. An ACMNP team member not only loves the outdoors, but desires to build relationships with those that work in and visit America's national parks! They must want to grow as a leader in an unfamiliar and fast-paced environment with the support of our national office team, as well as on their individual team. Expect to grow personally and in relationship as you explore a national park for a season! We not only connect people to jobs in national parks, but train up leaders, promote community, and offer opportunities to worship in God's awe-inspiring creation. We will consider all applicants who can affirm the Apostle's Creed and work in an interdenominational context.
Housing is typically provided for a cost by the employer. Team members live in dorms or apartments with 1-3 roommates. Most furniture and linens are provided.
Depending on the park, team members can go hiking, biking, kayaking, horseback riding, spelunking, rock climbing...whatever the unique area offers!
Teams are either provided meals in an employee cafeteria or cook their own food in a personal kitchen.
Spaces depend on the park, but are typically provided on-site for a cost.
