Barnabas

You’ve seen them, watched them wander back from the daily showers or tool around in the pickup truck, but what do they really do?  As a member of the Barnabas team, you will help facilitate the smooth operation of Royal Servants Training Camp. You can expect to do a number of jobs – from organizing the barn, daily cleaning, making dumpster runs, putting together the obstacle course, setting up tents and working in the admin building – anything and everything that will serve Training Camp and help it run efficiently. Barnabas is not a place to get away from home for a few weeks, or a convenient location for a reunion, but a place where you will get a bit hot and sweaty, and where your servant hood gifts will be used and appreciated!

 

What do we look for?

 

First: a person who’s willing to be a model. New students on the field will be looking at you, and you’ll need to model going in 3’s, enthusiasm, and teamwork. Sorry ladies, no makeup!

 

Second: a servant’s heart. The Barnabas team is about doing the things behind the scenes that don’t get a lot of glory (not many warm fuzzies for mowing the grass), but make it look good and run right.

 

Third: a positive attitude. There are days that you will be super-rushed, but other days that will be pretty chill. Whether you are busy or not, doing hard (or boring) work, bring a positive attitude if you want to be on Barnabas. No whiners wanted! Besides assisting at Training Camp, Barnabas will also focus on small group interaction. We want our team to be more than a work crew; but to be a group of individuals drawn together into a tight-knit team, focused on giving glory to the Lord through all that is done.

If anyone is thinking of Royal Servants you should do it for sure. So many people are famished for the truth, peace, and love of Christ. Not only can you see their life change but yours will as well. God will and can use you if you allow Him. So thank you Royal Servants and thank you Lord! – Evan

Royal Servants has giving me the opportunity to serve others, share my faith, grow deeper in love, experience a new culture, find a new understanding of scripture, have a family of teens that are on fire for God and fall in love with my Father who loves me.

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
