Job Description

Who we are:

Over the past two decades, technological advancements and the allure of a global community have made it increasingly effortless for us to slip into isolation in our daily lives. We often find ourselves living in one place, working in another, and spending leisure time far removed from our immediate communities. While technology offers diverse opportunities for long-distance connections, it has simultaneously widened our networks without deepening our bonds. We cycle through interactions without truly looking each other in the eye, feeling human touch, or hearing a voice in person.

As human beings, we are inherently wired for connection. We yearn to belong, to derive meaning from our lives within the context of relationships, and to feel understood in the presence of others. Yet, in our commuter mindset, we often overlook the opportunity costs, missing out on genuine personal connections, failing to invest in any single community, and ultimately neglecting to nurture a sense of place for ourselves and those around us. Recognizing that our quality of life is the culmination of our relationships, we acknowledge that weak and distant connections undermine our sense of fulfillment. Institute for Community, through Community Life, is seeking to address this imbalance.

Who We're Looking For:

  • Enthusiastic individuals committed to building meaningful relationships and fostering community spirit.
  • Experience in leadership, community engagement, or related fields is a plus, but a passion for making a difference is what truly matters.
  • High school diploma or equivalent required.
  • A Christian with a daily walk with God.
  • A team with an existing relationship with a church in that area. (Preferable not required)
