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 today! Preferred candidates will have at least 90 days of availability.

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.

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.
