We provide a Junior Staff position at Miracle Mountain Ranch. This is an opportunity for some of our past apprentices to make a one year commitment to serve in a staff position. This differs from permanent staff in that they do not fill adviser positions with the apprentices and are in positions of working directly under the supervision of a permanent staff member. They are encouraged to raise support for this year, and extended schooling is also an option, though not required. Due to the nature of having a lot of young and single staff, our positions and needs are constantly changing. This is a great opportunity to fill a specific niche until God directs them elsewhere or to make a long term commitment. As permanent staff, we are excited to have these young and passionate kids join us and extremely grateful for their involvement and sacrifice for the Lord’s work.
