2017 Summer Program Staff

Join our team in 2017!

The children need you. They need someone to spend time with them, set a good example, and be a positive influence in their lives. They need someone to teach them that God loves them, and there are people who love and care about them, too. Choosing to serve at Youth Haven for the summer will have a life-changing impact for the children you serve.

You'll be changed, too. You'll be challenged. You'll form lifelong friendships with the other staff. Your heart will overflow. You'll have opportunities to practice patience. You'll experience the joy of seeing a child respond to the love of Jesus. God will stretch you, grow you, and draw you closer to Him.

And one more thing... Youth Haven is a ton of FUN!!
