Job Description:



HOPE Church is a growing church of over 1,000 people located in the Grand Cities Mall in Grand Forks, ND.  At HOPE, our Mission is to encourage others to let God love them, love Him in return, and love others in Jesus Name.  Our Vision is to reach 10% of the unsaved people in the Grand Forks area.  We believe that technology is a tool to help us move forward in carrying out our Mission and Vision.  We also believe that God has called us to equip others to use their spiritual gifts and talents to mature as followers of Christ.  Currently, we have 4 services in 2 venues and are constantly thinking of how we can make more room for people to come and hear the gospel.


What We Are Looking For:

First and foremost, we desire a person who loves God and has surrendered their life to Jesus Christ.  Secondly, we are looking for someone who genuinely loves people and desires to invest in them to see them grow spiritually in the area of Tech Ministry.  To be blunt, Lone Rangers need not apply! Lastly we desire someone that has technical skills with past experience or general knowledge in the core areas of sound, lighting, multi-media and video that can take us to the next level. IT experience would be a plus but we realize that finding someone who has a strong desire to be trained and is self-motivated to learn in this area is more realistic.
