Welcome to the Pine Valley Apprenticeship. This is a 9-month resident discipleship program designed to develop followers and prepare leaders for a lifetime of service dedicated to serving Jesus Christ. There is also the option to finish the year as summer staff.
A small number of young men and women make the decision to set aside this time of their lives towards developing character, identity and discipline consistent with Christian leadership.
The Pine Valley Apprenticeship offers a labor intensive work experience and discipleship training within the various departments of the camp ministry of PVBC.
For any young adult interested, the Pine Valley Apprenticeship is an opportunity to be shaped for ministry leadership through challenges, discipleship, and practical experience.
Depending on demands/schedule; an apprentice could find themselves hopping in with daily tasks related to:
• Food Service/Kitchen
