The Employee Experience
A Christian Ministry in the National Parks has grown to offer more opportunities in more incredible parks! Our winter locations encourage team members to invest 6-7 months in a community of like-minded people while exploring the canyons of Big Bend, snow-shoeing in the Rockies, or rock climbing in Death Valley. Don't just work any job this winter; grow personally and engage in ministry in the most incredible work environments imaginable!
Once you apply and are selected to serve with ACMNP, we help you secure employment in the park you have been intentionally placed in. We are not the employer, but a non-profit ministry that connects our team members to jobs within national park concessionaires.
Typically, our teams work in fast-paced hospitality-type jobs in the heart of a national park in order to provide relational ministry to those far from any Christian community. Our trusted relationship with park employers has made ACMNP possible since 1968!
An ACMNP team member not only loves the outdoors, but desires to build relationships with those that work in and visit America's national parks! They must want to grow as a leader in an unfamiliar and fast-paced environment with the support of our national office team, as well as on their individual team. Expect to grow personally and in relationship as you explore a national park for 6-7 months!
We not only connect people to jobs in national parks, but train up leaders, promote community, and offer opportunities to worship in God's awe-inspiring creation.
Room and Board
Once our team members secure employment in the park they were placed in, we hand them over to the concessionaire to acquire housing. Our national staff will help teams walk through this process, but allow Human Resources to do their job in preparing employees to live in their specific location.
They are your main resource when it comes to transportation to the park, housing, food and more!
ACMNP team members work full-time, seasonal jobs in one of six locations during the winter season. Not only do you earn a paycheck, live and eat on property, but may be offered other benefits within the individual company. Dependent on the location, you could receive discounts on tours, ski passes, and in shops and restaurants!
Getting Here and Getting Around
Although not required, bringing a vehicle is always suggested to team members. This allows our teams freedom to explore the surrounding area, go into town, and get to worship service sights more easily. However, most locations have great transportation options and shuttles for employees to get around and to their individual jobs. Many employers will provide transportation to and from the airport upon completion of their contract.
There is a space for this question on our application and we will determine the best fit either way!
Can you see yourself riding donkeys in Big Bend National Park this winter? What about boating through the winding waterways of the Everglades? Or skiing some of the most impressive slopes in the country?
ACMNP combines your love for the outdoors and desire to serve all while earning a paycheck. Connect with people who love photography, winter sports, kayaking or just leisurely hikes in what will inevitably be your new favorite park!
