Summer Staff Beyond Reality

Go beyond reality…push the limits. That is what camp is all about. It is pure and untainted ministry. It is a chance to see the Lord take away what the world says is reality and to see lives changed for Christ…right before our eyes! What a privilege it is to get down to the heart of a camper, the heart of a staff member and see God at work.

Here at Gilead, we are excited about the opportunity that God has given us to minister to youth, college age staff, high school staff members and families through out the summer. Through exciting chapels, dynamic speakers and worship, cabin devotions and discussions, and wild and crazy games, campers as well as staff are encouraged to make Christ evident in their lives and to seek Him with all of their heart and soul.

Can you imagine…spending a summer with a dynamic team of servants excited about ministry and committed to Christ? Let God make it reality for you.

Join the Gilead Summer Staff Team!
