Ministry Team Leaders say:

“I arrived at the chapel with thirteen mice, and a week later I left with thirteen lions.  The Boardwalk Chapel is at the same time a safe house for fellowship, and a bootcamp for zeal; a haven of prayer and a hive of song.  It is all these things and more because the Lord has so obviously been pleased to use it.”


“I see this as a great opportunity for church members of all ages to be trained in evangelism and grow in boldly speaking of Christ. Team members return home with a greater enthusiasm to practice evangelism in their community.”

Ministry Team members say:

“The fellowship with the Chapel staff in prayer is truly amazing, and I was motivated to seek out opportunities to have that kind of fellowship with the believers in my life.”


“I loved fellowshipping with the teens and witnessing their many talents in the service of Christ.”


“I particularly enjoyed observing the different approaches that other team members and the chapel staff took to engage in discussion—I marvel at the gifts and knowledge that God has given individuals to spread His gospel.”

July-August 2019:

From the Boardwalk Chapel Website:
CHURCH GROUPS (Ministry Teams):

  • Regular summer ministry teams come for a week (Saturday to Saturday) during the dates that our nightly programs are being conducted by staff (Father’s Day weekend through Labor Day weekend). We are grateful for any help that the church groups offer our staff in the areas of evangelism, music, drama, and support and our staff are happy to provide all evangelism training needed to share the gospel on the Boardwalk. For staying in the whole Chapel (an upstairs and downstairs apartment) for a week, church groups are asked to provide $2000 to offset maintenance and general living expenses. In addition, church groups are asked to provide for their own meals.


    • Week Six: July 27 to August 3: OPEN!
    • Week Seven: August 3-10: OPEN!
    • Week Ten: August 24-31: OPEN!


September 2019:

From the Boardwalk Chapel Website:

  • In September, we are happy to offer space for churches to send families and/or youth to enjoy a time of fun, fellowship, free Christian concerts, and optional evangelism/apologetics training. For the weekend, we ask that teams provide $500 to stay in the Chapel apartments or at the staff house, and also ask that they provide their own meals.
