Job Description

Are you handy? Do you have some time on your hands? Would you like to come to the South of France for a few weeks and serve?

One of our Communitas families is in the process of renovating an old school building in a neighboring village. The plan is for the building to become three self-catering holiday homes in the summer rental season, and have the capability of converting to a 22/26 bed conference and retreat center in the fall and spring.

We would hope and pray that it would serve families and various types of groups during the holiday season and would be available (and affordable) for church groups or missionary organizations for retreats or conferences during the fall and spring months.

We’d love to explore with you whether God may be calling you to serve with us for a bit in this practical way.

Principal Duties & Responsibilities

We need skillful laborers who can help in construction. This would involve electricity, plumbing, interior framing and putting up plasterboard. In addition, bathroom fixtures and kitchen cabinetry and plumbing would be helpful. Fun teamwork and creating new meeting and retreat spaces for groups.

  • French would be fun, but no real need, since we all speak English and Dutch. ☺
  • Able to communicate so everyone can understand what you are trying to say…
  • Be you! Being someone else all day is exhausting and God made you wonderful!
  • Proactive as opposed to reactive.
  • Servant leaders pretty much rock!
  • Work with excellence. Always. At least really try…
  • Keep confidential matters strictly confidential.
  • Currently involved in a local church and evidence a growing spiritual maturity.
  • A self-starter, able to work remotely, and able to handle project management.
  • Must be flexible and able to adjust to a changing work environment and challenges.
  • Systems thinker who enjoys the challenge of building something from ground zero.

 

We’re looking for someone that is a committed follower of Jesus Christ and has a strong commitment to the mission and values of Communitas.
