Job Description:

ChristWay is a gathering of loving people who are seeking to look more like Jesus. The students at ChristWay are not exempt from that description. Our desire is for our high school students, and all students really, to become more like Jesus. We tell our students that, “We are the future and the future is now”. What we mean by that is this: You can be more like Jesus and more like who He has created you to be TODAY. From large-scale vision casting to conversations with singular students, our goal is to communicate that we can be more like Jesus TODAY; we don’t have to (and don’t want to) wait. Our team is unified in this goal, and we strive each day to maintain this goal in humility with words that encourage others and with attitudes that exhibit an understanding of the grace we’ve been extended. We can’t believe we get to do what we get to do!
