Job Description

We’re looking for individuals, couples or families who are good at connecting with other people. We are looking for people who are willing to engage others and share God’s love with others in sometimes hostile environments. Are you willing and able to love people where they are at? Are you patient as you engage with people and their processes? Do you like nature, culture or sports? Do you naturally engage with and bless young people? Are you passionate about helping others make their lives better? Do you have gifts that could help, engage with and inspire others (like hiking, cycling, sailing, surfing, musical gifts, etc.)? There are not many opportunities for young people to have fun or make themselves useful, how might you engage with these young people from your own gifts/passions?

We are not looking for people who are all about doctrinal positions, and are uncomfortable with nontraditional forms of church. Many people here have rejected the Catholic church and are repulsed by the institutional church. Others are open for the church but only see it as a cultural aspect and are unfamiliar with grace.

We’re looking for people who are passionate about Jesus and making Him known, are self-motivated, are serious about loving and serving others, have ideas and are also excited to work in a team. Do the mission and values of Communitas resonate with you? Do you have a heart to work with Moroccan people? We’re looking for people who are open to going: short term (1-3 years) or long term (3 years+)

Do you perhaps also like nature, culture or sports? Do you naturally engage with and bless young people? Do you have gifts that could help, engage with and inspire others (like hiking, cycling, sailing, surfing, musical gifts, etc.)? There are few opportunities for young people to have fun or make themselves useful. How might you engage with these young people using the gifts/passions/interests that you’ve been given?
