Every Ministry Track Leader (MTL) will have two very important roles to play to make sure WIRED is a success. MTLs are responsible for teaching our Bible Study and leading a ministry site for the ministry track group you will be assigned to lead during the entire week of WIRED. This group of 10-20 students will be under your care daily from 9:00 A.M. – 3:00 P.M. There are several different ministry tracks for Wired. You will have the opportunity to give your preference on which of these tracks you would like to lead.
Ministry Track Options:
- Children’s Ministry – Kid’s Club
- Children’s Ministry – Extreme Camp
- Sports Camp – Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA)
- Social Ministry – Nursing Homes, Rescue Mission, Food Bank, Pregnancy Center, Homeless Shelters
- Painting, Construction, & Yardwork (PCY)
- Evangelism – Creative ministry opportunities for sharing the Gospel.
- Multi-Cultural Ministry – Engage ESL groups and other cross-cultural communities.
WIRED requires one weekend of extensive training for all of our Ministry Track Leaders. Our training dates for WIRED are May 30 - June 1. Our first night will be an orientation for new leaders on Thursday, May 30 from 6:00 P.M. – 9:00 P.M. Everyone will train all day on Friday, May 31 and Saturday, June 1 from 9 A.M. – 9 P.M.
We will use this time to make sure every leader has been appropriately trained in the Bible study for the week, student management and disciplinary procedures, as well as site preparation. Each staff member will receive a copy of the WIRED Bible Study before training. It will be expected of each staff member to read this study, make notes regarding the study, and to prepare a teaching outline before the weekend of training.
We will also focus our attention on site preparation at all ministry track sites throughout the Wiregrass. Depending on which ministry track you are assigned to, you may be preparing one site or up to five different sites for WIRED week. A lot of the work in preparation will be done prior to this weekend of training, but it most definitely will be a packed couple of days.
Our final training will be a walk through at the Civic Center on Saturday, June 22 from 3:00 P.M. – 9:00 P.M.
Compensation Package for Staff Members
We hope that your decision to serve as a Ministry Track Leader at WIRED will not be determined entirely by pay. However, we believe in compensating our leaders for a very difficult week of work, as well as for the many hours of training and preparation beforehand. All Ministry Track Leaders will receive $500 for serving at WIRED. We consider this to be a fair, even somewhat generous amount for your work. Payment will be delivered at the end of camp in the form of a check from Wired Ministries.
All meals will be provided for the Ministry Track Leaders at host churches and on ministry sites. The housing arrangements for Ministry Track Leaders have not been confirmed, but we always have a few options for out of town leaders. You will work from 1:00 P.M. – 10:00 P.M. on Sunday, and 7:00 A.M. – 10:00 P.M. Monday – Friday, with a couple additional hours on cleanup on Friday night.
WIRED Ministries will be performing a mandatory background check on all Ministry Track Leaders to ensure the safety of the participants attending WIRED. This service will be paid for by WIRED Ministries and only take a few minutes to complete online. No one associated with WIRED Ministries will have access to the information shared through this process and will only be notified of an applicant’s approval or denial. There will be no exceptions to this policy.
Statement of Beliefs
The entire staff associated with WIRED will be working under the statement of beliefs as outlined within the Baptist Faith and Message. If you should have any questions regarding these set of beliefs or desire to receive a copy of the Baptist Faith and Message, please contact Dustin Lee at (334) 618-6697.
Deadline for Application
All applications for Ministry Track Leaders should be received no later than March 1. Our goal is to have all staff members in place by the end of April.
