Jesus came to invite all people into relationship with God, and as his disciples we are called to love one another and help one another recognize God’s presence in every circumstance and experience, including the experience of mental health challenges. This is a call that requires not only profound compassion and hope, but also education and equipping. Our team is shaped by the values of practicing compassion, cultivating hope, building relationship, pursuing excellence, and demonstrating integrity. If these values sound like yours, we encourage you to apply!
