2024 Summer Staff, Grounds Crew

$425/week. Free housing! Free meals! Unforgettable summer!

The Grounds team is tasked with landscaping, cleaning, and maintaining the Ridgecrest campus outdoor areas. For the majority, their work is done outdoors to ensure that our vast campus is well taken care of. Their position is important to make guests feel invited, and they keep campus looking clean. A few of their job duties include:

  • Planting new bushes, trees, and flowers
  • Clipping back any greenery that is in the way of walking paths and roads
  • Removing trash from outdoor public areas, and keeping those areas clean
  • Removing any wildlife that does not need to be on campus
  • Mowing fields and grassy areas

This department is filled with manual labor, so members of this team must be ready to lift heavy objects, dig holes, stand for long periods of time, and operate some landscaping machinery. They work hard to keep Ridgecrest’s grounds well-maintained and clean for the guest experience. 

  • A genuine desire to make a huge impact for God’s glory
  • Be flexible, hardworking, and willing to serve coworkers and guests
  • A willingness to grow personally, and professionally in a fast-paced Christian environment
  • Ability to work cooperatively with team members
  • Ability to see how work impacts overall guest experience
  • Attention to detail
  • Servant-hearted

Our Summer Staff are a dynamic team who have a genuine desire to come alongside Ridgecrest in our mission of Impacting Lives for God’s Glory. Summer Staff have the incredible opportunity to interact with and serve guests from all over the world from May-August. Our prayer is that our program is a life-changing experience. We want Summer Staff to experience God and encourage them as they grow in their relationship with Him, equip them with skills they will carry with them for years to come, and build a strong community among our team where they will meet lifelong friends. Here are a few things you will get to be a part of:

  • Weekly discipleship programs (Chapel, Community Group, Service Projects, etc.)
  • Planned events on campus (Sporting Events, All-Team Hangouts, Picnics, etc.)
  • Serving in a behind-the-scenes role around Ridgecrest 

Staffers must have an 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 have the opportunity to learn about leadership and the responsibilities that come with it.
