THIS ROLE MIGHT BE FOR YOU IF:

 

  • You like getting things done.

Booking all the details for a trip, ordering 4 levels of children’s curriculum, or figuring out a schedule and menu for 40 workshop attendees does not annoy you.

 

  • You enjoy creating spaces and experiences where people feel welcome and connect deeply with each other.

 

  • You are comfortable being either a leader or a helper. You understand intuitively which is required of you in each circumstance and happily work accordingly.

 

  • You like being with and helping people. You are as happy seeing someone else thriving in their work as you are in thriving yourself. You enjoy being a part of a team that works together with unity, energy, and clarity.

 

  • You enjoy a week with varied tasks. A mix of simple, routine tasks and complex, one-time projects works for you.

 

  • You’re ok with some “ministry flex” to your schedule.

 

  • You love all-set, ungospeled Bostonians and want to invest your life in seeing Seven Mile Road become a place where every Bostonian Jesus gives us is loved and gospeled well.

 

  • You are committed to, wired for, and excited about our missional essentials of boldness, hospitality, creativity, and the long-game.
