Peer Ministers are an important component of Music Ministry Alive! Throughout the week, they are called to be servant leaders for their peers, lead daily reflection groups, and be present to other MMA participants. This group is limited to about fifteen students. Those who feel called to this ministry are encouraged to apply for a position!

Responsibilities for 2017 Peer Ministers include:

  • Arriving at MMA early for two days of formational training and instruction.
  • Leading a group of about 10-12 other MMA participants in discussion sessions during daily peer group meetings.
  • Facilitating daily peer group lunches to foster community among group members.
  • Communicating any student concerns to MMA staff and actively working with staff to resolve any issues.
  • Being an ambassador of the MMA program. Peer Ministers are a supportive and uplifting presence within the MMA community, before, during, and after the week of MMA. 

If you would like to participate in this ministry, submit the application form at the bottom of this page to apply. As there are only about fifteen spots available, be sure to submit your application in a timely fashion. Applications are due by April 1, 2017 – an earlier deadline than the Youth Application forms. Do not delay in applying!

 

IMPORTANT: YOU MUST SUBMIT A YOUTH APPLICATION IN ADDITION TO A PEER MINISTER APPLICATION.

A PEER MINISTER APPLICATION IS NOT ENOUGH TO APPLY FOR THE MMA PROGRAM. BOTH APPLICATIONS MUST

BE SUBMITTED IN ORDER TO APPLY FOR MMA AND PEER MINISTRY. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU FILL OUT ALL APPROPRIATE APPLICATION FORMS AND SUBMIT ALL REQUIRED ESSAYS.

 

Additionally, your application for the MMA Youth Program and for Peer Ministry can be submitted at separate times. They are not required to be submitted together. If you apply for the Youth Program and later decide to apply for Peer Ministry, you can still submit the forms so long as they arrive before the deadline. Applications submitted after

the Peer Ministry Application deadline (April 1) will not be accepted.

 

Helpful Hints:

 

​When filling out the essay responses, MMA recommends that you type your answers into a Word Document, then copy and paste your responses into the boxes on the application. This will allow you time to compose your response and ensure that you do not lose your responses due to technical difficulties. Click here for a listing of the questions.

 

Try to fill out the application all at one time. Technology is not always perfect, and leaving yourself plenty of time to fill out the entire application will help make sure none of your data is lost along the way.

 

Because this is a new process, please contact MMA via musicministryalive@gmail.com if you have any questions or concerns.
