Here’s a brief taste of life of what you’ll experience by being on staff at The Journey.
Working with others. The first thing that Jesus did when he began his ministry was build a team of people that he would lead and serve with. We think that people work best when they’re connected with others, so we work hard to make sure all our employees serve within a team.
High tech. But only if it helps you get the job done. At The Journey, we believe that technology can help us be more efficient in getting the message of Jesus out. We will help you discern what you need and then do our best to make sure you have it.
Constant growth. The team that Jesus originally assembled--the disciples--weren’t exactly perfect when they met Jesus. In fact, they were a bit of a mess. But Jesus used them anyway, transforming them into leaders of the people of God. Whether it’s becoming more like Jesus or becoming a more excellent plumber, we work with everyone on staff at The Journey to develop their gifts, talents, and abilities so they can be more effective ambassadors for Jesus.
Benefits for today and tomorrow. We don’t play games with your health or your future if you come work at The Journey. All our full-time employees have major medical insurance and we offer a competitive retirement matching program.
Work hard. Rest hard. People sign up to work at a place like The Journey because they care. They want to see people learn to love Jesus better and they spend all their time pursuing that. We don’t want to ever see people burn out, though, which is why we want our staff to take a weekly Sabbath and offer plenty of flexible vacation time.
Fun. It’s a serious business we’re in but we try not to take ourselves seriously. We cultivate a working environment that is fun and enjoyable to be in. And we hope you’ll join us.
