Staff (& Particpants)
TMJC 2020 is August 2- August 8
Please see the Applications Health Forms pages for the Paperwork needed. See News page for updates.
JUNIOR STAFF paperwork forms are due by April 1st 2020. This is the deadline and last day to apply. No applicants will be accepted after this time in order to schedule the necessary interviews. Music team applications are also due on April 1st, although this application and these interviews are separate from the Junior staff.
For the protection of all,
we are asking each ministry involved with Teen Mission Jasper County
to do a Lice Check on the opening night (August 2nd).
The teen will should receive a hand stamp by that ministry.
The stamp will simply show proof of evaluation at Check-In.
If a teen is found to have been exposed,
we will simply ask them to return home and get treatment.
Once they are cleared, TMJC of course wants them to return!
We will have a separate area at Check-In for a quick evaluation for any teens not previously checked.

* We expect our young ladies & gentlemen to dress appropriately at TMJC. Work clothes should be t-shirts and higher neckline tank tops that fit properly without being too tight or so loose that gaps allow undergarments to be seen. Sports bras should not be seen at all please. Shorts and pants should not show underwear (or anything worse! Ugh.), nor should they appear as undergarments.
These are general guidelines, however if an outfit is blatantly inappropriate, the participant will be asked to change.
*It is not our attempt to try and govern others’ attire, but to make TMJC about helping others, not causing distraction to each other.
What to leave at home:
Electronic Devices are not needed at TEEN MISSION. Please do not bring a cell phone, electronic games, computers, etc. To prevent loss of such items, all electronics brought to TMJC will be confiscated at admission and locked up safely until the end of TMJC. All of the staff will have cell phones for emergencies.
Perfumes, colognes, or overtly fragrant cosmetic/beauty products
Hairdryers, electric curlers, etc. (We’ll all be naturally beautiful!)
Any items expressly prohibited in the TMJC contract
Bad attitudes and laziness…. But I’m sure we won’t have any of that!
