Ridgecrest Summer Staff is a dynamic team that desires to see lives impacted for God's glory! Staffers will have the opportunity to serve over 10,000 guests from all over the world between May and August. Staffers must have authentic and growing relationship with Jesus, have great communication skills, and be self-motivated. There will be long/busy days and staffers should be prepared to work hard both mentally, and physically. We offer an opportunity for those in the program to learn and develop skills that are useful in everyday life. Through training and hands-on experience, you will learn about leadership and the responsibilities that come with it. As part of the program, in addition to your job duties, you will be challenged in your spiritual walk through small group interaction and fellowship. Staffers will also attend weekly chapel services, participate in planned activities and have free time to to enjoy God's creation.
A summer staff position in A/V Conference Services at Ridgecrest is an opportunity to learn skills in many different areas such as operating state of the art audio and lighting equipment for the 7 auditoriums on our campus. The opportunity also includes the setup and maintaining of classroom space for guests including the cleaning and moving of tables and chairs. The hours of work will vary due to the nature of our business. There will be days of long hours and long weekends but there will, of course, be lots of fun. You will need to be able to walk for long periods of time (we average 12,000 steps/day) and be able to lift 50lbs (we move a lot of tables and chairs). You will need to be a problem solver and enjoy high-pressure situations. You will need to have a good sense of humor and be ready for a fun and fulfilling summer with a great team.
