JOIN HARVEST MINISTRY TEAMS FOR A SUMMER OR A WEEKEND!
Interested in serving this summer leading music at camps and churches? We would love to meet you!
Since 1996, Harvest has sent summer teams into ministry to serve as worship leaders (and ministry leaders in general) to youth and kids camps all over Illinois. Summer Teams spend lots of time leading music for worship, but spend even more time connecting with students, hanging out in the dining hall, leading devotions and games, and participating in small groups and Bible Studies. Serving the church in this way is an awesome opportunity for any age, but especially for young adults in the midst of their college years. Investing a summer in Harvest Ministry can be life-changing!
Harvest is seeking Christian, ministry-minded musicians to serve in a traveling worship team leading music and ministry for church camps, student and children’s ministry events, churches and summer ministry events. We’re seeking instrumentalists, vocalists, and worship tech team members and applications are being taken. You can apply here!
MISSION AND PURPOSE
The mission of Harvest is to GO OUT to sing, serve and share the gospel and at the same time RAISE UP the next generation of disciples and ministry leaders. Since 1996, nearly 300 team members have traveled to serve with Harvest during the summer.
Camps and events are coming back – slowly – after the pandemic years, so we are flexible with the schedule. The current plan is to connect toward the beginning of June to prepare and rehearse. Once we finalize the summer schedule, it may look something like traveling the last two weeks of June, off the first week of July, then traveling the rest of the month.
SCHEDULE, TRAVEL, LODGING AND MEALS
The schedule is pending for this summer, but once we’re finalized, travel costs, lodging and meals will be covered for the team members. Typically, we meet in Troy, IL, leave from there to serve in ministry events (mostly around Illinois and the local Midwest), with the length of events lasting for one day to one week in the same location, then head back to Troy, IL. The summer schedule might be something like Week One: rehearse and prepare, Week Two: lead worship for a student ministry camp; Week Three: Lead a series of kids day camp events in various locations, Week Four: Lead worship for a mission week, Week Five: Lead kids worship for a kids camp, Week Six: Lead for a high school and college festival week while they serve on mission.
While on the road, all meals, lodging and travel are covered. We also invite team members to self-support toward their summer ministry serving and mission. We will set up an account for you and assist you in raising money through your friends, family and local church. A typical summer full-time ministry for eight weeks would be in the ballpark of $2400 – $3000, though there isn’t a set amount that needs to be raised. You can learn more about fundraising here.

Harvest has served in many denominations and have had team members representing many denominations as well. Our beliefs are basic: seeking to invite the next generation to follow Jesus.
