Performing Arts Day Camp Staff - Summer 2007

The Leavening Agency
Asheville, North Carolina, United States

Date Posted: 02/19/2007
Categories: Sports and Recreation
Job Type: Full-Time

Job Description:
The Leavening Agency (TLA) is contracted by churches throughout the United States to direct all aspects of week-long Performing Arts Day Camps for children. We work in many denominations and in churches of all sizes. 2-4 day camps are scheduled per week, June through August, and each is directed by a team of at least three TLA staff members. We strive for excellence in all that we do, including hiring only the most qualified and committed individuals. Our standards are high, and the rewards are great!

We are seeking mature, spiritually-grounded Christians who love children and have a sincere desire to be in ministry. Flexibility, a positive attitude and willingness to work as part of a team are essential. Proven ministry and work experience are also very important. All employees must be available and willing to travel.

Weekly pay is $300-$400 for each day camp worked, depending on experience. Summer positions do not include benefits. Travel expenses are paid by TLA or the host church; however, employees must provide their own housing within reasonable driving distance of TLA headquarters in Asheville, NC, where all travel originates. Depending on the day camp location, teams usually travel to the host church on Sunday, returning to Asheville on Friday evening or Saturday morning - then leave again on Sunday. Therefore, local housing is usually needed only on the weekends between camps. We try to schedule team assignments to allow reasonable time off between camps, but most weekends will require some travel. During the day camp week, all team members are usually housed together in accommodations arranged by the host church - so its important to understand that even "time off" during the day camp week will usually be spent with the TLA team. For the right individuals, traveling and spending time with the team is one of the best parts of the job!

To sum up, were looking for people who love Jesus and kids - and who are willing to offer their very best during a fun and rewarding summer of ministry!
