What are we looking for?

That a clear sense of God’s calling to this specific and sacrificial work will become manifest through the hiring process. This is the preeminent criteria and takes priority over all criteria.

A demonstrated strong and growing Christian faith and desire to be part of the Spring Canyon ministry team. A passion to minister (possibly at all hours) to guests through courteous, friendly and professional guest services.

Excellent organizational and time-management skills. Ability to organize and prioritize multiple projects efficiently with limited guidance.

Advanced computer skills including proficiency in Microsoft Office applications, email, and basic internet usage.

Strong interpersonal and guest services skills.

View service at Spring Canyon as a ministry calling rather than just a job. Be totally invested in the vision and mission of OCF and Spring Canyon, and serve with a whole heart (1 Sam 12:24 and Col 3:23-24).

Financial freedom to work for ministry-level compensation.

Possible conference center housing in a single-efficiency apartment.

A 3-5 year commitment is preferred.
