join the team
All of our team members are called to help students gain experience, connections, and perspective that helps shape their life-long contribution as witnesses for Christ in their sphere of influence. If you are called, we invite you to apply to join our team.
YWAM Ocean City is a new YWAM location in Ocean City, NJ, USA and is an outpost of YWAM’s Student Mobilization Centre. YWAM Ocean City is seeking to build a team of local YWAM staff skilled in website development, marketing and communications, writing, and other technical skills that will support the development of the Converge platform, local operations, and Discipleship Training School. As a small, new YWAM location, staff positions are multifaceted and provide opportunities for staff to use their existing abilities, training, and experience, as well as to be challenged in learning and developing new skill areas through hands-on experience and professional development.
As we look forward to the start of our second DTS and first Converge DTS – a hybrid of traditional DTS lecture, campus ministries outreach, and Converge internships – all staff members joining our team will be expected to participate in the DTS in some capacity. For most, this will primarily take place in the context of the student internships, but staff members are encouraged to lead one-on-ones, small groups, and other discipleship-focused functions as agreed upon with YWAM Ocean City leadership.
salary and benefits
YWAM does not pay its staff. We actually raise our own salaries! Most of our staff meet their financial needs by partnering with friends and churches who support their ministry. In some areas, our staff work in other businesses for financial, practical or ministry reasons.
apply to join staff
