How would you like to have an all expense paid vacation for you and your family? To sweeten the deal, how would you like to add to that experience a way to sharpen your vision of and call for ministry?
I have the perfect plan for you!
For must of us, this school program year is coming to a close and many of us have a little break in the tempo of ministry. This makes for the perfect season to go and spend a vacation with your family and have it not cost you a thing!
All you need to do is find a place you would like to take your family on vacation. For me, I think Disney World would be awesome. But maybe the Grand Canyon, New York, Universal Studios, the beach, or the mountains. Once you find that place, simply go on to youthspecialties.com, or your other favorite job board and apply for jobs in that area.
It doesn't matter if you want to be Presbyterian, Non-Denominational, Methodist, Baptist, whatever, In fact, the more different from your tradition, the better. Now, apply for every job in a 50 mile radius. With a decent resume and some good phone etiquette, you will be invited out with your family to see the church and experience the surrounding areas.
If you kill it, your perspective church might even give you the hook up for destination places like Disney World or Wrigley Field.
The best part, is that in this process you will have refine your vision for ministry and as well as your ministry plan. You will have the opportunity to clarify all those dreams you have stored up in your head to a committee who wants nothing more than to hear what is going on in that head of yours. And who knows, your sense of call may even get tweaked!
Dream big! Sell hard! And enjoy the vacation of your dreams! (All for free!)
See you in Orlando!
