Summer always seems to get here quicker than we expect. It's now that time of year when we are making final decisions on hiring our Summer Staff. Layton and Jeff sat down this week and came up with a few reasons why being on Summer Staff at Blueprint rocks. Read below, and feel free to share with your favorite college students!
Top 5 reasons to be on SUMMER STAFF
(at Blueprint Ministries)
By: Layton and Jeff
#5. San Antonio. Imagine a summer spent in the beautiful Alamo city. This place has so much to offer. With your weekends off, you can explore one of the nation’s largest cities and all of its local hot spots. You can enjoy the leisure of the River Walk, the atmosphere of Pearl Brewery Area, the history of the 6 local missions (including the Alamo), the screams of Sea World and Fiesta Texas, the tranquility of gorgeous city parks, and the shopping of countless malls with endless sales.
#4. Career Building. Nothing says “hire me” on an application more than a summer of service at a non-profit. It shows dedication to one’s own awareness and personal sacrifice. You will also learn basic construction skills and hands on problem solving. Not to mention you get to use power tools. Serving with Blueprint will take you out of your comfort zone and prove that with God’s help, nothing is outside your realm of expertise.
#3. A Summer of Free Room and Board. Your living expenses are included in your service while you’re working here. Your room and board is covered along with any gas you use for the ministry. You get to eat, sleep, and drive for free. Not only that but… wait for it…you get PAID!
#2. Relationships Galore. Not only will you be living life with your fellow summer staffers, but you will also be hanging out with campers, homeowners, church leaders, and adult volunteers from all over Texas. You will build incredible relationships with the homeowners you serve and with the summer staff you work alongside. Our summer staffers are known for becoming friends for life. Some of them are even known to get MARRIED to each other! (Shout out to Reed and Diane). Each week you also get to network with an amazing group of campers and adults from around the state of Texas. If all of that isn't enough for you, maybe best part is that you will become part of the Blueprint family for life. You can't beat that.
#1. Servant Leadership. You will be stretched to unbelievable lengths in your serving and leading. You will grow in your understanding of what Jesus modeled through His ministry by being a servant. You will also grow and learn what it’s like to lead others in their own journey of self-sacrifice and service.
Ladies and gentleman, it really doesn't get better. If you or someone you know may be interested in joining us this summer, follow this link to our Summer Staff page to learn more and fill out an application.
