Each year volunteers are needed to help run the Lord's Boot Camp, a time of training for our summer missionaries. Teen Missions staff alone cannot do this job, so we rely on the help of others. A few of the behind-the-scenes jobs include; instructors for construction classes, kitchen helpers (our kitchen runs in 3 shifts 24 hours a day), building and grounds maintenance helpers, and specialty assistants such as nurses and certified lifeguards. We prefer a commitment of at least a week and meals and housing are provided. Call the office to register. Requirements: Volunteers must be born-again Christians with the ability to work well with others and have a servant attitude. Volunteers should be mature adults 21 years or older; however, we occasionally accept mature teen volunteers. Former team members who wish to volunteer must be 18 years of age or older and recommended by their leaders. Teens must realize that working at Boot Camp and being a team member are two totally different situations, and if you come as a volunteer you will be expected to work. Work hours are often long, most of the work is behind the scenes and may seem thankless. We need your help but do not want you to come with misunderstandings. If you do not want to work, do not come. This is not a vacation!
