Ministry Support Workers (Hastings), on-call
Union Gospel Mission
Hastings, ON
The Opportunity

Are you adaptable, service-oriented, available to cover a variety of shifts (including overnight and/or weekend), and enjoy building positive relationships with those in the Downtown Eastside? If yes to all, we are seeking several auxiliary, on-call Ministry Support Workers who are responsible for assisting the Outreach Team in ministering to marginalized men and women living in the neighbourhood of the Hastings Facility. You may be making referrals for housing, clothing, shelter and recovery, as well as performing a wide variety of other duties in order to serve our guests and our team with excellence.

This is a ministry position and a personal knowledge and experience of the saving work of Jesus Christ is a prerequisite. If you possess strong interpersonal skills, have related work or volunteer experience, and can successfully set healthy boundaries with demanding individuals and those in crisis situations, this might be a great opportunity for you.

You will frequently deal with clients in crisis situations, brought about by diverse problems. There will be other staff nearby to assist as required.
