As an assistant in this ministry you would come alongside other believers in feeding the poor and engaging in other tasks at a local homeless shelter. Your purpose would be to visit and encourage these souls in the darkest time of their lives.
We are looking for people with the following qualities: self-motivated, good listener, compassionate, considerate, resilient, hard-working, and makes new friends easily.
