Each summer, Camp Ozark hires young persons to serve as Worship Leaders. The Worship Leader has a unique opportunity to use his/her music leadership skills in preparing and leading daily camper and staff worship services while supporting the overall mission of Camp Ozark.
The overall responsibility of the Worship Leader is to help ensure the successful and professional execution of the Camp Ozark worship services. There are three age-specific services occurring simultaneously in a typical evening, as well as five staff worship services and several additional special services for the entire camp each session. Worship leader duties include, but are not limited to:
- Preparation for leadership of staff worship services that occur two to three times weekly
- Leading worship at one of our three daily worship services
- Identifying other Camp Ozark Staff to play at worship services and properly communication expectations to staff
- Assisting/leading in teaching morning classes (usually guitar) in support of Camp Ozark's program
- Refereeing Tribal Competition as needed
- Supervising an area of camp during Mish Mash (campers' free time)
- Supervising activities during Special Events
- …and more!
Worship Leaders can expect to gain valuable experience in song selection, service crafting, communication, teamwork, leadership, and servanthood. The Worship Leader works under the direction and supervision of full-time ministry resources staff. The Worship Leader plays a pivotal role in the experience, ministry, and outreach of Camp Ozark, as he/she directly contributes to the spiritual growth of campers and staff. Previous experience working with children is not required, but preferred. Prior experience teaching music lessons and leading worship is also preferred.
Finally, the Worship Leader gets to work in an exciting, kid-oriented Christian environment alongside other talented and passionate college students. The hours are long and the work is challenging, but the job is very rewarding!
