The Boardwalk Chapel provides a unique opportunity for the saints to serve Christ on the Boardwalk of Wildwood, NJ. Through in depth evangelism and apologetics training, staff are equipped to share the gospel and gain invaluable experience by engaging in evangelism daily in Wildwood. During the summer, staff live and serve within an uplifting and intimate community in which they experience rich fellowship, encouragement, and spiritual growth. The staff spend their summer doing ministry and are also able to explore and enjoy the beautiful beaches of New Jersey and all that Cape May County has to offer.
At the Boardwalk Chapel, staff serve on specific teams that allow them to use their individual gifts to build the Kingdom of God.
Evangelism Team: All staff receive evangelism and apologetics training and are involved in evangelism. Evangelism team members receive extra training and specifically learn how to lead evangelism teams in conversation with Chapel visitors and people on the boardwalk. Young men may also have the opportunity to lead devotions and gain experience in preaching during the programs.
Music Team: Music team members receive training in evangelism and apologetics, and are involved in post-program evangelism. They also learn how to use their musical gifts evangelistically by performing in the nightly programs. Music team members ordinarily take part in daily rehearsals to prepare for the programs. The music team is made up of individuals who can sing in parts, and/or can play guitar, lead guitar, bass, percussion, keyboard, or other instruments.
Drama Team: Drama team members receive training in evangelism and apologetics, and are involved in post-program evangelism. They also learn how to use their acting talents evangelistically by taking part in daily rehearsals and performing gospel-themed skits in the nightly programs.
