In-Training Online Application Information

The In-training program is designed for teens 15 years of age and older who are interested in leadership training and desire to be mentored and discipled while gaining hands-on experience. A position at Miracle Mountain Ranch is not a typical summer job, and is not for everyone. You must have a genuine love for children, a learner’s attitude, the ability to be flexible when needed, and a lot of patience. We desire that you be a committed Christian who has a strong relationship with Jesus Christ and be looking for opportunities to share your faith with ranchers and staff. Please prayerfully consider these expectations before sending in this application.

Applicants must be 15 years of age or older.

There are several ministry options open to Teens-In-Training, see below:
