Adult Leadership Opportunities

Are you a young adult looking for a leadership opportunity, to be involved in international short-term missions with a fast-paced, youth-oriented, Christ-focused environment? Serving on one of our leadership teams as an assistant may be a perfect expression for your ministry heart and unique spiritual gifts.

What is an Assistant?

On Royal Servants, each adult leader is actively engaged in the day-to-day life of the team. Outside of the primary Trip Leader, each Assistant is responsible for one of three primary roles of food, finances, or medical. You do not need previous experience because we will provide all the training you will need. Being an Assistant will give you an incredible opportunity to develop your leadership gifts, grow spiritually, and develop deep and meaningful relationships with students.

Royal Servants has a philosophy that “everything you do is a context within which to build a relationship.” Although your role as an Assistant is primarily task-oriented, you will influence and care for participants’ emotional and spiritual needs while working within your role. You will probably do well as an Assistant if:
  • You enjoy serving, are able to pay attention to detail, and function well behind the scenes
  • You have the ability to work well when tired (jet lag), late at night, or under time constraints
  • You can be trusted with responsibilities and be relied on to complete the requirements of your role
Close
  • You must be 21-35 years old. It will be helpful if you have prior ministry and/or missions experience, but it is not necessary.
  • You must be able to attend Assistant Training Week (June 13-19) and remain onsite to begin your role, starting with Staff Discipler training (June 20-26) and continuing on to Training Camp for students (June 27th) and then overseas until the mission trips’ completion.
  • You must be available to complete Reign’s interview process (phone or video call), able to provide a church reference, and pass a background check, which is required for those working with minors.
Close
The roles that you will be asked to choose from as a leadership team Assistant is in the areas of food, finances, or medical. You will have the opportunity to dialogue with your Trip Leader to find the role you feel you are best gifted to fill and will be based on need, skill, experience. Food The Assistant in charge of food is good for those who are good at planning and are flexible. You will be responsible to create an overseas menu within a budget, shop for and purchase the food necessary for the meals, and be present to oversee the preparation of each meal. You’ll engage closely with small groups of students and train them on how to prepare, serve and clean up each meal. If you are detailed, enjoy training, and are patient in the midst of a bit of confusion, then you have some of the qualities that will help you excel in this role. Think about it, you just may be the person who saves a 15-year-old boy’s life by teaching him how to make his own peanut butter and jelly sandwich! Medical If your role is the medical Assistant, you will be providing the team with a nurturing heart as you care for students individually and collectively. You will distribute daily prescription medications, track the use of over-the-counter medications, and monitor other health concerns as they arise. You will also accompany participants to the hospital/clinic when needed in the absence of their parents. All medical related issues will be updated daily in each team’s Medical Log. This role is essential in helping maintain health and stability so students can focus in on ministry fully! Finances Handling the team finances is critical as you are basically the team bank. You will be responsible for monitoring the team’s budget, handling international money exchanges, distributing participant spending money, and recording all purchases and money spent into the team books on a daily basis. It's a role that is strategic, detail, and definitely behind the scenes, however throughout the day you have more freedom in engaging with students, helping guide them on how to spend money to budget well throughout the summer, and to provide more support for the other assistants doing their role! Close
Contact us at royalservants@reignministries.org and answer a few basic questions for the validation code to register online. Once you’ve completed the registration, we will set up a time for you to interview with a member of our Leadership Team.Close
Assistant week is designed to prepare you for your role. There will be multiple training sessions during Assistant week, which includes all Assistants within in that same role on other teams. This is a great relationship building time that will function as a support network during Training Camp. Time will also be set aside during Assistant week for you to get to know your individual Leadership Team, discuss the Trip Leader’s specific expectations, and dialogue on possible team experiences. Close
Some Assistants may also take on an additional discipleship role by leading a small group throughout the mission trip. This is not possible on every team but will be determined at Training Camp. There are a number of other important roles that include: media/communications, videography, photography, and ministry logistics; that need to be filled once the main three (food, medical, and finance) are solidified. Close
If you are interested or are signing up for a specific team without being recruited by the Trip Leader, we will do our best to assign you to the mission trip you most want to serve on. However, depending on leadership needs (that team may already have a full leadership team), you may be asked to serve on your second or third choice. Close
Even though your mission trip is two weeks longer than students’ (due to your training), the cost is as published on Reign’s website. Spending money is separate and is the same as a Staff Discipler on the same team. As an assistant, you are also allowed to apply for a Leadership Scholarship. Additional information and forms will be provided once your application process is completeClose

During this summer, I have fallen more deeply in love with God and have begun the life-long journey of getting to know him more. I am so thankful for the opportunity to be on a Royal Servant team this summer, and I am so excited to see how God uses this experience in the years to come. – Phoebe

My son went with Royal Servants to Sierra Leone Africa this summer. While in Africa he was able to share the gospel with people in cities and villages. I really appreciate this. Some trips are just work projects. Not with Royal Servants. The students are trained to share the gospel and have many chances to do so. My son grew spiritually, was able to deal with sin issues in his life, and grew in his confidence to share the gospel. I would strongly encourage anyone considering going on a trip with reign to send their child. It is not for the faint of heart, but it is for those who are looking for an experience that will help your child grow to be more like Christ. – Kevin

The Royal Servants program is time-tested and mother-approved!! We've sent two sons (ages 15 and 16) overseas with R.S. with faith in the Lord to protect and keep them under the watchful guidance of the Royal Servants staff. We have not been disappointed. No lost passports, no lost luggage, no lost boys!!! They came face-to-face with the lost world and came home with great appreciation for their blessings and a level of awareness that makes them even more responsible and faithful at home!! – Paula

I can highly recommend Royal Servants to anyone who might be considering sending their son or daughter. Royal Servants took a real personal interest in the safety, well being and spiritual growth of our daughter. God was so faithful to provide the needed funds, so quickly, through our generous and loving church family. Our daughter had only to pray and to ask. As parents, we said many times, "We feel so blessed that our daughter had this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! – Karen
