Paid National Park Ministry at A Christian Ministry in the National Parks
One of over 30 National Parks

Still need an internship for seminary or graduate school? Want to live in a national park? ACMNP could fulfill this requirement while taking you to a majestic setting, allowing you to earn a paycheck, and serve others through worship and relational ministry! *Seminarians will also receive a $2,000 scholarship at the completion of their season.

Outside of working approximately 40 hours a week in the hospitality industry, ACMNP team members are expected to lead approximately 1-3 interdenominational worship services on Sundays with their team. This may include leading worship, sharing a message, and greeting worship attenders. Often times, ministry teams lead bible studies or help with park stewardship initiatives! Housing is provided at a minimum cost from the employer.

If you have more questions, email us at [email protected] or apply online at www.acmnp.com/apply today! Preferred candidates will have at least 90 days of availability.

Pay:
While pay can vary depending on the state and park the team member is working in, pay typically ranges between $8-15 per hour. We estimate that the average team member ends the summer with $2000-3000 in their pocket.

Fees:
We are a non-profit missions organization that ministers to national park communities. Similar to other missions organizations, we charge a small fee to participate in our program. However, we connect all of our team members with a full-time, seasonal job in their park, and we estimate that our team members make $2500-$3000 over the course of a summer, after accounting for incurred expenses such as room and board.

Upon accepting a placement offer, there is a $350 Program Fee that covers your training, a leadership assessment, coaching, ministry materials, t-shirt, mid-season support, and a post-season debrief designed to help transition from and process your ministry time in a park. Some team members choose to raise support to help cover these costs. We can help with a fundraising manual and ideas. Past team members have sold stickers or t-shirts, started a Go Fund Me campaign, and planned fundraising events.
