Guide Staff

 
 
Beyond Malibu sea kayaking and mountain guide staff positions are a two year commitment to the front lines of our ministry. Guides are the primary facilitator of the spiritual content of each week. Guides work in partnership with group leaders to develop and implement spiritual experience of the trip. They are trained in both ministry and technical skills in order to provide a safe adventurous week-long wilderness experience designed specifically to meet the wants and needs of each group. Because of the responsibilities of this position, we are looking for people 21 years or older who are emotionally mature, have well developed leadership skills, and at least two years of ministry experience. No mountaineering or sea kayaking experience is required but being comfortable in the wilderness setting is a plus. We provide all of the technical training you will need. Being rooted strongly in Christ is definitely a requirement. The work is hard but the joys of serving others, building relationships, and seeing God move are well worth the sweat.
