EVERYONE BRINGS SOMETHING VALUABLE TO BUILD SHALOM
Servant Partners will work with you to find a unique role that reflects your passions, talents, and God’s call on your life. Our communities are diverse and multi-cultural. We want to create teams that reflect the beauty of the communities we serve in. We celebrate multiple points of view and strive for all to feel comfortable to bring their authentic selves to their roles. We work hard to create an environment where everyone from any background can offer their best, and in order to do that you must feel included and valued. We provide training, and supportive resource groups to all of our staff; these include cross-site ethnic specific groups, as well cohort spaces to gather staff in a similar "season of ministry".
As a member of Servant Partners staff, you can start a new team in a city, join an existing team, or act as a coach or trainer for Interns or long-term staff.
As part of our Support and Equipping Staff, you can use your gifts in leadership, spiritual direction, intercession, counselling, administration, teaching, training, graphic design, social media communication or pastoring. Staff at Research & Innovation sites have taught English, helped to start new businesses, and trained local leaders.
No matter your role, we strive to nurture an environment of inclusion that allows everyone to courageously share their perspective, creatively flourish and grow in emotional resilience.
Servant Partners sends, equips, and trains those who want to share their lives with neighbours in marginalized communities and see those urban neighbourhoods transformed. We emphasize relationships, flexibility, creativity, and risk-taking in ministry. Our value for incarnation requires that we live in or alongside the under-resourced community that we seek to build meaningful relationships with.
For our staff, Servant Partners is not just an employer, but a community of believers with a shared calling to life on life mentoring and a common spirituality through our Rule of Life.
Servant Partners is donor-supported, by individuals, foundations, churches and grants that invest in our roles and projects. Staff fundraise to cover salary and program expenses.
Many of the positions described below can be adapted to fit your availability: full-time or part-time, paid or bi-vocational.
