1. Complete the application on the following pages. This includes providing basic information about yourself, answering several short answer questions and a 500-word essay. For references you must be able to provide contact information for three professional recommendations (cannot be family or friends). You also must attach a recent photo of yourself and a 60-90 second video introduction of who you are and why you want to be a summer missionary. The video does not need to be a major motion picture or be highly edited. We simply want to get to know you. This could include information on your family, your friends, your school, your hobbies, your ministry, or anything about you. There will be more information about the video in the photo and video section of the application. If you set up a username and account, you can save and return to the application at any time. Please do not submit until your application is entirely complete. It should take you anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour to complete. If you have any problems completing the application, please contact us.
2. An email will be sent to you confirming that we have receieved your application. If you don't get an email, please check that you have submitted your application. By November 21st, a member of our summer missionary selection team will contact you to set up a time for a skype interview. After the interview, we will contact you to let you know your status for the summer. All camp selections will be made by December 15, 2016 at the latest.
3. Upon acceptance, you will be responsible for transportation to and from the airport closest to the camp where you will be serving. Your commitment begins on the first date listed on your session and goes through the last date. It is expected that you will serve the entirety of the session and remain with the camp team for the whole session. Life Teen will provide housing, linens, meals, and transportation during the session but extra spending money for weekend trips with your team is recommended.
