This Way to the Boardwalk Chapel!

Janet Birkmann

There are many ways to serve in a short-term missions capacity at the OPC's Boardwalk Chapel in Wildwood, NJ, this summer: As House Parents...as a Ministry Team for a week....as a member of the Volunteer Staff on the music or evangelism or domestic teams...sharing your maintenance skills for a weekend. Check it out - they need you!

House Parents Needed:

  • Do you love to work with energetic young people who are passionate about the things of the Lord? House Parents provide oversight, safety, and counsel for the volunteer staff at the Chapel.

Ministry Teams: GREAT OPPORTUNITY! Bring your church group to serve for a week:

  • Week One: June 22-29, OPEN for a smaller church group to join another church group.

Volunteer Staff: Evangelism Team:

  • The Team Leader serves as the Chapel Director’s right hand man by guiding the Evangelism Team in teaching, prayer, and outreach, as well as overseeing daytime operations at the Chapel. This is a paid position and includes free room and board for an individual or for a couple. There are also multiple openings for Evangelism Volunteers who are eager to learn, grow, and use their talents for the Kingdom of Heaven!
  • Summer Staff details HERE.

Volunteer Staff: Domestic Team:

  • The Domestic Operations Coordinator needs an assistant. What is sought is an individual with a big heart for serving who is excited and passionate about blessing the entire volunteer staff this summer! Domestic Coordinator Elissa shares, "While I am looking for someone who is capable in the kitchen, please don't let skill level worry you too much, as I am happy to teach! I am most interested in finding a person who has a deep heart to use gifts of service as a way to bless others and serve the Lord." The Domestic Team is much more than just cooking and serving nourishing food, but seeks to train staff and develop character in the life-long skills of humble care, patient diligence, and loving care toward others.

Volunteer Staff: Music Team:

  • Any additional musical talent would be a blessing to fill out the current team, but a drummer and a bassist are especially needed this summer!
  • Summer Staff details HERE.

Work Teams/Youth Groups:

  • A small group of 4 to 6 people is needed for the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd weekend in May to complete the following projects: install 2 screen doors, caulk and paint bunkbeds at Chapel, and assist with trim work. The estimated cost of the combined projects is $500 and we are grateful for any donations toward these needs!
  • The weekend of September 13-15 is also open for a work team or youth group.
