General Qualifications

Each position will have specific qualifications. Listed below are general qualifications that apply to every position.

1. You need to know Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour

2. You must be an active member in an evangelical Church

3. You need to have a passion to help others know Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour

4. You should know how to lead someone to Jesus Christ

5. We are looking for those who are team players

6. You must lead a life-style that is sexually in line with God’s Word

7. You cannot be a smoker or a user of alcohol and illegal drugs*

8. Must sign statement of faith

*We occasionally get asked about the reasoning behind the 7th qualification. We acknowledge that our standard regarding the use of alcohol may be higher than Scriptural teaching. However, the vast percentage of people who look to us for help are dealing with addictions and their ravaging effects. To be of maximum help to them, we have set this standard. Alcohol is a real weakness for so many in our ministry that to use it would cause grounds for stumbling. We are, in a very real way, helping those that are weaker and those yet to become believers. We seek to follow Romans 14:13-21 – not to judge others who disagree with our position, but to help those who desire to be freed from the devastation of addiction.
