Honoring the LordBecause Jesus is not only God, but God for us, who humbled himself to act on our behalf, who conquered death and is actively working toward the reconciliation of all creation, He is not only worthy of our honor, thanks and praise, but also of our ongoing participation in his ministry of reconciliation with all that we are and do and say.As Jesus himself summarized, the greatest commandment is to Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength. (Matthew 22) B. Serving OthersBecause we are sharing in Christ's ministry, it is His attitude and actions that are impactful and transformative and are conveyed to others through our own. His ministry is invariably personal and inherently relational, making even the most menial task a vehicle of his love. As we humbly attend the needs of others, his love is conveyed by our service.As Scripture says, even the Savior himself came "not to be served, but to serve." And Jesus, after washing his disciples' feet, told them, "Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another's feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him." (John 13)C. VocationBecause we believe that the caring profession is a vocation, that we are called by the Lord to participate in his ministry of loving others, we offer our labors from the heart, perceiving them as a sacred trust and pursuing them according to the excellence this call demands."As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love." (Eph 4)D. CompassionBecause we believe that Jesus laid down his own life for each human being, that we ourselves are dependent upon his grace, and that he continues to be at work through the circumstances of life to draw all men and women unto himself, each person we encounter is to be treated with the compassion, kindness and generosity characteristic of Jesus himself.As Scripture says, "and he saw him, and he was moved with compassion." (Luke 10)E. CollaborationBecause we are part of a team, a family, every task we perform is significant as part of a larger whole, with none being independent unto itself, so that As Scripture says, we are members of one God, with Christ as our head, with each member designed to perform a different role, each complementing the other and together for "two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, for he has no one to help him up. Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm; but how can one be warm alone? Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken. (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12)Position Hours and TravelThis position is a full-time/part-time job located in a designated home with travel as required or directed. Average travel expectation is less than 2%.
