About Us

Originally called the “Gospel Pavilion,” the Boardwalk Chapel conducted its first services in July of 1945. Now,  following a week of training, a staff of assistants and volunteers testify on the boardwalk, on the beaches and during the nightly services. The work is a ministry of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church and the Presbytery of New Jersey.

Upcoming Opportunities for Churches

 May 2016: Consider bring a group to the Chapel this spring to help out with work projects! We will post specific needs and ideas for work after the winter, but please let us know in advance if you would like to reserve a weekend.
End of Summer Staff: When our primary summer staff begin leaving in August for school and employment, we welcome any young people to apply to help with the end of the season. The recommended donation is $100 per week, and there is also the option to stay into September to assist with work projects and enjoy weekend concerts and youth activities. Fill out an application today!
September: Youth groups have a new opportunity to join us at the Chapel for fun, fellowship, and free concerts this September. The weekends of Sept 16-18 and Sept 30-Oct 2 are currently open. The recommended donation for staying at the Chapel for a weekend is $500. An additional opportunity is to receive apologetics/evangelism training from our Director, Pastor Jim Zozzaro. Please email us with any questions and to reserve a spot!
Summer 2017: If you have not had the opportunity to serve for a whole week at the Chapel in the past or in a long time, we would love to add you to next year’s calendar! Church groups arrive on Saturdays, settle in for fellowship and worship on Sunday, and then help with the ministry alongside the summer staff all week long from Monday through Friday, heading out the next Saturday morning. Please email us for more information and to check out which weeks are still open!
