A College Experience for Adventurers

Opportunity to live, work and serve in a national park this summer!

Experience Wilderness like you never have before.

Did you know that your summer between semesters can take you to some awe-inspiring places? Try rock climbing in the Grand Canyon, hiking at Rocky Mountain, or kayaking in Yellowstone!

Experience Worship like you never have before.

Have you ever sang the hymn “How Great Thou Art?” It takes on a whole new meaning when you sing it over the summer living, working and worshipping in a national park. 

Experience Work like you never have before.

Are you studying facility and event management, ministry, communication, exercise science or business? A Christian Ministry in the National Parks (ACMNP) volunteers earn a full-time income by working for national parks and developing skills that transfer to many professions!

Experience Leadership like you never have before.

Have you been pushed out of your comfort zone spiritually, physically, and relationally? It might be preaching a sermon, leading a hike, or making strangers feel like family. You never know how you will be challenged to lead others over the summer!

Impactful. Transformational. Unforgettable.

Sounds like an experience that mirrors that of Grace College. Our students’ experience right here in Winona Lake includes a focus on leadership, work, worship, and even wilderness! (Check out our awesome mountain biking/running trails and beautiful lake just off campus.) That’s why we encourage our students to utilize their summers to keep it going–learn a new skill, go to foreign places, and pursue adventurous opportunities. This is just one of the many great options you have here!

Interested to learn more?

On November 25th, 2019, a recruiter from A Christian Ministry in the National Parks (ACMNP) will be on campus in the Alpha Dining Hall to encourage students to apply for the chance to serve and adventure in one of America’s parks this summer.
