A Christian Ministry in the National Parks

About A Christian Ministry in the National Parks

Do you see yourself climbing in Yosemite, kayaking in Alaska, or hiking in the Smoky Mountains?

A Christian Ministry in the National Parks (ACMNP) began in Yellowstone National Park in 1951 with the dream of providing Christian community for the people working in, living in, and visiting the first national park in the world.

This summer or winter, you could join the legacy by impacting those that impact the national parks! Participate in ministry, work a full-time seasonal job, and have a national park as your backyard.

“This was one of the most impactful experiences of my life. This is a very unique opportunity that I didn't know existed until last year. Myself and two other team members were sent to a location within the Olympic National Park, and it was such an uplifting experience. During our time in Olympic we had the opportunity to not only host the Sunday morning worship services, but we also really connected with the community and our co-workers. Being in these national parks, oftentimes the staff can feel isolated. You work with people from all over the world, and many of them don't have support systems or people to talk to. Henceforth, we were able to share Jesus' love with them and really connect. You hear so many testimonies- some are heartbreaking. But you have the chance to be a light and a good role model to the people around you. Not only that, but you yourself grow closer to God in so so many ways. He really opened my eyes and showed me that I needed to stop trying to control every aspect of my life- I needed to let him lead instead.”
