Job Description:

Looking for an Exciting NEW Opportunity in a Local Mission Field?  Do you love meeting people and have the opportunity to think "Outside the Box"?  New Creation Church is looking for mission-minded individuals who love to work with the community and lead in small groups.  In partnership with GOLDMARK Property Management on-site at one of their Apartment Communities, the Idealife Team will work to increase resident retention, create community and enhance property appeal.  In addition, we are looking for a Small Groups Leader to serve as the primary point person of all Idealife Teams as well as leader of Groups at New Creation Church.

  3. Create opportunities to give back to the community with resident involvement.
  4. Idealife will care for residents by identifying and addressing needs surrounding major life events such as the birth of a baby, loss of a loved one, job changes, familial status change, etc.  These major life transitions can affect the decision of a resident to renew.

  6. Partner with management in keeping the apartment community clean and beautiful by raising awareness to residents and assisting the staff in maintaining clean grounds and common areas.
  7. Visit each resident prior to renewal (60-90 days in advance of lease expiration) to uncover any issues that might put the renewal at risk.
  8. Idealife will conduct a minimum of 3 resident events each month to include a variety of activities such as:
  • Kids activities (Fun Fridays, movie night, Back to school bash, Easter Egg Hunt, coloring contests, etc.)
  • Breakfast on the go
  • Pool party, Holiday party, Halloween party, etc.
