Job Description:
Do you want to be a significant part of a movement that longs to see transformed lives?

Do you get excited about not just knowing about God but experiencing Him every week?

Do you want to be a part of a team that is not satisfied with just doing church, but longs to be the church?

Imagine a community of surrendered and transformed people who are completely impassioned with love for God their Father… a community who serves together, plays together, works together, and lives life together because they have been changed by His Spirit… a community who is so caught up with the living hope of Jesus that they empower the poor, strengthen the weak, and love the lost. Their world will be impacted because God has sent them. They are us. Their story is ours.
