Gull Lake Ministries' staff is a group of people with a love for Jesus and a heart for ministry. We recognize that real service isn't about mints on your pillow or how many adrenaline-surging activities we offer. It's about meeting the real needs of our guests without any strings attached—simply selfless acts of kindness. Because Jesus is our model, we want to demonstrate our love for Him in the little opportunities that occur every day. If there's a need, we want to meet it. We know that we look most like Christ when we are serving others. Our passion is to joyfully serve you in all we do!

Summer Staff

Each year the GLM hiring committee packs its bags and travels the recruiting trail to find college students who love Jesus and want to serve you and your children during your week of Christian family vacation. Our staff selection process is intense and, if selected, staff members receive over 40 hours of training, preparing them to give you the most exceptional experience possible. These spiritually mature college students stand out among their peers; they model character, respect, and modesty, and they want to get to know you and your kids!
