Amigos for Christ seeks to make Jesus more visible to every person that comes into contact with our ministry. To further this vision, every summer we host over one thousand short-term missionaries who come for a week at a time to provide support to our projects, whether that’s working with our Health, Education, or Water and Sanitation team. Meanwhile, it is our hope that they would encounter God in new and transformative ways during their stay with us.
Our Servant Leader Program exists to support this overall mission by developing Christ-like leaders who are committed to this vision of facilitating life-change, specifically amongst group members, through cross-cultural connections with communities and the Amigos staff.
As a Short-Term Servant Leader, you will spend three weeks helping us make that happen by serving our groups while they stay with us. It will be your distinct pleasure and responsibility to make sure every group member feels welcomed and cared for during his or her visit, especially when they’re kicking it at the Amigos Complex after the workday.
This might mean leading the charge on making 100 perfect PB&Js, cleaning a few extra dirty dishes, or organizing an impromptu ping pong tournament extravaganza after dinner – basically, all the little things that take a good week and make it completely awesome. You can expect to be challenged to reflect the confidence, humility, and joy of Jesus Christ, setting the tone each day and allowing our weeklong missionaries to focus on the work at hand and encounter the Lord in the best possible way.
Even though you will have tasks to accomplish, Amigos is centered on an entirely intentional approach to ministry that occurs through the relationships we build in the midst of our work - it is the core of everything we do. As a result, we look at every day as an opportunity for each member of our team to have a profound spiritual impact on those who come into contact with Amigos for Christ.
Sound like how you want to spend your summer? Then go ahead get started on the application! Please be honest - we want to get to know you and to learn your story, so feel freedom to tell it in the way that best represents who you are and what God is doing in your life. We’re excited that you want to come alongside us and be a part of what God is doing, and we can’t wait to learn more about you.
¡Gracias!The Amigos Team
