Ozark Lakes Summer Mission has been an exciting, Christ-centered, life changing experience helping students build life-long friendships and grow in their faith since 1978! This summer we will learn from the bible, engage in a community of authentic fellowship and be equipped to talk to others about Christ. The summer is designed for college students desiring to enhance their leadership skills (personal, spiritual and ministry), walk with God and impact others for Christ. Men’s and women’s times each week will help you gain a deeper understanding of your identity in Christ. You will have a job on this mission where you will experience intentional relationships with co-workers (& since the support you raise for the summer covers the majority of your meals each week...you get to bring all of your money from your job home with you!). You will be prepared to lead on your campus and equipped for a lifetime of personal ministry regardless of whatever vocation God calls you to after graduation. (We sometimes have options for internships depending on your field of study, or if you need to take an asyncronous class, please contact us if interested).
In the beautiful Ozark Mountains, you will have opportunities to explore and rest in God's creation. Join us for a great adventure in your journey with Christ.
At the end of the summer, our hope is that you have a greater understanding of and love for Jesus and that as an overflow of loving Christ with all your heart, mind, soul and strength, you will be compelled to tell others about His amazing love!
*Cost includes housing, all required Summer Mission activities, and the majority of your meals.
