Yellowstone Summer Mission

Welcome to the Yellowstone Summer Mission! Come and join us for an incredible summer in the heart of God’s creation!

You will join with about 24 other college students who will work and minister in Yellowstone National Park. You will be living at the Old Faithful location in the park and have jobs as Room Attendants (housekeeping). Since you will live in small dorms and eat in a shared dining space, the environment in Yellowstone is perfectly suited for natural relationships to develop with your coworkers- many of whom will be international students. You will learn to listen, share your story, and to communicate God’s love in numerous settings throughout your daily and weekly activities, as well as be equipped for a lifetime of walking with Jesus and serving Him. We will do our project orientation and debrief at a camp in the foothills near Montana State University in Bozeman.

Come join us for a summer of a lifetime!

Here's what students are saying...

“Yellowstone Summer Mission is unlike anything you will ever experience. I have experienced God in a more intense and real way than I ever have or ever could have imagined. My relationship and understanding of Him are forever changed through my time on YSM. God lit my heart on fire in Yellowstone.”

“The idea of giving up a summer at home with my friends and going to Yellowstone was a huge step of faith for me. I never thought I’d seriously consider going on a summer mission. After much thought and prayer, I decided to spend 11 weeks in Yellowstone and I was very happy that I did. The Lord taught me so much through the people I met and the beauty of the park. My faith in the Lord was strengthened in a way that I could not have imagined before the summer began. I wouldn’t trade the Yellowstone experience for the world and I can’t believe I almost passed up the opportunity.”

“Going YSM was one of the most meaningful experiences of my life. I met amazing people from all over the world. A few project members and I led a Bible Study with our Singaporean coworkers after work each day. It was amazing to see their faces light up with understanding as we clarified their questions about the Bible. To them, the gospel was too good to be true. The idea that we as humans could actually talk to God and He would care to listen was unbelievable. YSM changed my life and I would recommend it to anyone who loves God and is passionate about His kingdom.”
