As a Bootcamper, what will I be doing?

The majority of your time here will be spent working alongside our full-time missionaries. Each week you will be going out to visit families in the communities that we minister to and will be highly involved in doing Sidewalk Sunday School in those same communities. Included with your hands on ministry experience will be continued classroom ministry training and assignments. There will also be day-to-day ministerial operational tasks that Bootcampers will be involved in.

As a Bootcamper, will I be safe?

Safety is always a top priority, yet any encounter has the potential for unexpected challenges.  As a Bootcamper, specific guidelines have been set in place to reduce risk, including a nightly curfew and physical self-defense and basic street smart training.

What other important information do I need to know before applying to the Bootcamp program?
