Serve

There is no better place to ignite a spark of passion for Christ than in the heart, mind and imagination of a child. For the last decade Louisiana college students have served our state through the GoLA Vacation Bible School teams. Teams of 6 students set out on an adventure through the largest cities to the smallest villages of our state to serve alongside our church leaders as they share the gospel with the next generation. 

As a GoLA team member you will provide hope to children from all walks of Louisiana life by introducing them to Christ in a loving fun environment and have the opportunity to live out the words of Mat 25:34 “Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of my brethren, you did it to me.” 

Utilize your God given talents and passion as you make a difference in the lives of children right here in our state! 

Location: Louisiana

Dates: June 4 – July 31

Cost: Paid Position (stipend that equals roughly $200 a week)

Additional Details: Teams will be staying in hotels and will travel together in the GoLA VBS mini vans.
