State Staffers

Regional State Staffers are a select group of high school age young men that receive leadership training and volunteer their time and talents in service. State Staffers serve for twelve consecutive months and provide leadership at summer camps, regional mission rallies and the Royal Ambassadors / Challengers Campout & Missions Mania event each November, and State Race event in April in addition to other events and mission projects throughout the state.

Become a State Staffer and join God in His great adventure of being on mission with Him!

If You . . .

  • Are you a high school age young man looking for an opportunity in mission service?
  • Would you enjoy working in Royal Ambassadors/Challengers summer camps?
  • Are you a Challenger participating and promoting mission education in your church?
  • Would you like to join an elite group of young men who serve as TBM Regional State Staffers?

Then the State Staff is for you!

Each young man applying as a Regional State Staffer will receive leadership training at our wilderness training facilities located at Latham Springs Baptist Encampment. Final selection of Regional State Staffers will be made at an evaluation meeting during Leadership Training Camp.

Staffer Requirements:

  • Be a follower of Jesus Christ and have a desire to be involved in missions.
  • A young man involved in the Challengers program who is at least age 14 by September 1st of the previous year.
  • Be approved by the Regional Challengers Director and State RA/Challengers Director.

  • Be available for service at summer camps, mission rallies and State Congress.

The Regional State Staff is a voluntary position for which no salary will be given. This does not prevent a gift from being given to a staff member, nor does it exclude expense money from being furnished. Family insurance is the primary insurance at all times. Each camp will have secondary insurance. Staffers are not covered by Texas Baptist Men during travel to and from assignments. Texas Baptist Men will provide the following for the State Staffers:

  • A Challengers staff jacket.
  • Travel and camp fees involved in attending Leadership Training Camp.
  • Travel expenses to and from their assignments.
