Outreach Ministries

Summer Ministry Teams (SMT)

The Summer Ministry Team program is a year-long student leadership commitment, beginning in the Spring Semester.  Two teams of 5-6 members each are selected through an application and interview process. One team spends the summer primarily serving by working with youth and children. The second team is a full worship band (drums, guitar, keyboard, sound tech), serving as the band for summer camps, church youth weeks, youth rallies, etc. After selection, team members begin an intensive leadership training program over the spring semester designed to prepare them for 9-weeks of summer ministry to camp, camp meetings, and churches in the United States. Post-summer responsibilities include two debrief meetings in the fall, as well as recruiting assistance for the next SMT group. Team members who complete their summer commitment receive a scholarship of $3,750 for the following school year, with 50% applied each semester.
