How to Get Hired

Some of the key characteristics are: Teachable, Honoring (valuing people), Direct in dealing with confrontation, Fun factor, High energy, Competitive, Work ethic, Intensity, 4Gs (Growth, Gifts, Giving, Groups).  Addtionally Our Code is a good lense for who fits our church -

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

Local candidates should already be investing their lives in our church by using their gifts (volunteering), being involved in community/discipleship (eGroup), giving, and inviting people far from God to our church.  All candidates should communicate their calling and desire to be a part of something greater than themselves.  The amount of effort they put in their application and video is an excellent way to standout.
