Since 1996, over 200 young adults have served on Harvest Summer Ministry Teams primarily serving around Illinois ane the Midwest leading music for summer camps, mission trips, student ministry events and churches. Applications are now available for 2015.
Harvest Summer Teams will meet in Troy, IL (Metro St. Louis area) on June 1, 2015 and will travel full time until August 2, 2015. The schedule is still in the works, but we typically invite the team to assemble in late April for a weekend preparation retreat.
If the whole summer isn’t possible, find out more about traveling for a week or two during the summer.
WORSHIP LEADER / TEAM LEADER: We’re praying for the right person to take this role as a worship leader / guitar player. This person must be over the age of 21 and have some experience in music / camp ministry. Though the summer is a mission and team members are invited to raise some funds,. the team leader role allows for a fund raised stipend for the summer.
INSTRUMENTALISTS / VOCALISTS: Harvest is seeking young adults who sing and or play an instrument. The summer team role allows for music ministry, but also other experience in leading, teaching, serving in a variety of ministry and missions.
TECH / MEDIA: If you enjoy serving in sound ministry, lyric presentation or video ministry, your gifts would be a huge asset! If you are interested, but haven’t done this type of thing before, we can teach you what you need to know.
Applicants must be at least 18, graduated from high school, Christian, have a desire to serve the church in mission and ministry for a summer, enjoy people, and be strongly connected to a home church. Fill out the application online.
If you would like to ask any questions about what the summer ministry might look like, please feel free to send me an email. We have a skeleton of the summer schedule started, but it changes drastically as we begin to assemble the team and as we begin to get invitations to serve.
