This is a one year scheme giving you the opportunity to serve God in Christian Ministry whilst gaining a wide range of experiences. During this year you would live as part of our Christian community here at Min-y-Don.
If you are interested in applying, please email us for an application form. There is no specific time in the year when Gap Years begin, so vacancies depend largely on how many spaces are available on our Team at any given time.
The main aim of the year is for you to serve God with us here and be discipled, growing in your faith as a Christian. If you wish, there would also be opportunity to gain experience towards outdoor pursuits qualifications in kayaking, canoeing, rock climbing, mountain walking and bushcraft.
Gap Years at Min y Don also provide opportunity for the following:
- Christian youth and children’s work

- Preparing and delivering a Christian message to guests and local youth
- Working and living as a team
- Taking an active part in Tywyn Baptist Churches mission and community

Successful applicants will take part in weekly team prayer meetings and discipleship group as well as planning and delivering short teaching times to school and family groups on Christian principles and values.
Whilst many Gap Year programmes ask you to raise money and pay to join it – we enable you to live and work as part of a team. Your pay each month takes into account all your living expenses whilst you reside on-site here at Min-y-Don. You would also have paid holiday entitlement.
Min y Don is situated in a stunning area of the Snowdonia National Park.
