Alabama Rural Ministry Spring Update

March 06, 2012

Alabama Rural Ministry (ARM) is seeking energetic and dedicated students to run its summer youth mission camps called “Extend.” There are still a few openings for construction and day camp counselors and are in need of guys to round out our total staff. The work is hard and the hours are long but extremely rewarding as you mentor youth, serve families through vital home repair, and minister with some vibrant and energetic children! Jesus will work in your life in a powerful way! Staff receive a $1,700 scholarship, $20/week stipend, housing, and most meals. 

Still seeking a place to serve this summer? ARM’s summer mission camps, Extend, still have openings at both sites in Livingston (West Alabama) and Tuskegee (East Alabama). A flat cost covers all of your expenses and included are materials, meals, sleeping arrangements, and evening worship and discussion. Activities include some disaster response in addition to serving our elderly and disabled families. Groups can also lead the daily activities at Sonshine Kids Day Camp with children ages 5-12 in each community. For information contact Lisa Pierce at or call (334) 501-4276 and see

Cycle of Service (aka Bike Across Alabama) is now registering riders. This 3rd annual ride benefits families in Alabama needing home repair! Riders take a three-day journey beginning May 4th and ending May 6th--you can go from state line to state line! In the afternoons, riders participate in community events. Registration goes through April 27th. Not a cyclist or can’t make it? Still want to help? Consider being a virtual rider! You can still sign up and either log in cycling miles around your home OR you can sponsor a fundraiser on our behalf. Lots of ways to plug in! For more information see
