“Toughest job you’ll ever love” was a hiring slogan from the Peace Corps at one time. Maybe you have heard it before. It was meant to target people who had “a good back, strong stomach, level head and a big heart.” It also conveyed the powerful message that sometimes the most rewarding things in life come with challenges. Do you agree? Do you also love Jesus, love seeing young people come to Jesus and have a history of successful leadership? If you answered “yes” and love the great outdoors, please keep reading as we have an amazing opportunity to share.
