Welcome

About Us

Originally called the “Gospel Pavilion,” the Boardwalk Chapel conducted its first services in July 1945. The work continues to this day with the efforts of trained staff and volunteers who proclaim the good news of the Lord Jesus Christ all summer long. The Chapel is a short-term mission and evangelistic outreach under the Presbytery of New Jersey within the Orthodox Presbyterian Church. Read more about us here.

News and Updates

Sign up to help in Summer 2019! Consider our our open church group weeks (June 22-29, July 27-Aug 3, Aug 3-10) here and check out our staff applications on the pages for volunteers and leaders!

  • Maintenance Need: A small group of 4 to 6 people for the 1st or 2nd weekend in May to complete the following projects: install 2 screen doors, caulk and paint bunkbeds at Chapel, and assist with trim work. The estimated cost of the combined projects is $500 and we are grateful for any donations toward these needs!
  • Evangelism Needs: A Leader to serve as the Director’s right hand man this summer by guiding the Evangelism Team in teaching, prayer, and outreach as well as overseeing daytime operations at the Chapel. This is a paid position and includes free room and board for an individual or for a couple. More details available here. In addition, we have multiple openings for Evangelism Volunteers who are eager to learn, grow, and use their talents for the Kingdom of Heaven!
  • Domestic Need: A Volunteer to assist the Domestic Operations Coordinator. We are seeking an individual with a big heart for serving who is excited and passionate about blessing the whole staff body this summer! Summer Coordinator Elissa shares, “While I am looking for someone who is capable in the kitchen, please don’t let skill level worry you too much, as I am happy to teach! I am most interested in finding a person who has a deep heart to use gifts of service as a way to bless others and serve the Lord.”  The Domestic Team is much more than just cooking and serving nourishing food, but seeks to train staff and develop character in the life-long skills of humble care, patient diligence, and loving care toward others.
  • Music Needs: Any additional musical talent would be a blessing to fill out the current team, but a drummer and a bassist would especially greatly help us this summer!
  • House Parents Needed: Do you love to work with energetic young people who are passionate about the things of the Lord? Consider serving as House Parents who provide oversight, safety, and counsel for the staff who are signed up to serve Him at the Chapel this summer! More details here.
