Hope House Barrie

You love people.

You are an influencer.

You are passionate about seeing and helping people to overcome hardship and to learn to become everything that God created them to be.

You are excited by the opportunity to "live on mission".

This unique opportunity can be flexible to meet the employment and/or housing needs of the right candidate.

POSITION DESCRIPTION (MINIMUM):

This is a unique opportunity for the person who feels called to ministry among the marginalized.  As a Residence Supervisor, you will:

  • Be able to provide personal accountability and physical security of the premises;

  • Model a growing Christ-like lifestyle in both knowledge and practice; and

  • Be teachable.

You will apply your gifts of discernment and hospitality in a setting that is a "ministry of friendship" among people who need a friend, guidance, and support.  Lived-experience and/or knowledge of addiction and trauma is an asset, but not required.

ADDITIONAL OPPORTUNITY:

The ideal candidate will be able to fulfill the role of a Peer Support Worker by living on site in the residence and by being available full time.  However, consideration will be given to the right candidate who is able to dedicate a sufficient amount of time, daily, to the role.

At present, we will work with the person who is the right "fit" to accommodate their personal and professional needs while meeting our need for a Residence Supervisor.   This means that the right candidate may or may not choose to live on site, and/or may or may not be gainfully employed elsewhere while living on site and providing supervision during "off hours" at Hope House.

The Supervisor, as a person who possesses demonstrable growing Christian maturity and character, will function within a team that operates on the front-lines of ministry and will be needed to exercise gifts such as hospitality, encouragement, wisdom, and leadership to visitors and volunteers at Hope City Church ministries, with particular emphasis on providing and facilitating mentorship paths and Christian Discipleship to programme participants along with all of the necessary administrative functions to maintain the facility and programme.  The Supervisor will support the vision and mission of Hope City Church Barrie.

GENERAL RESPONSIBILITIES:

The Residence Supervisor / Peer Support Worker will:

  • Oversee the day-to-day operation of the Hope House Residence, including chore schedules and assisting with meal planning, as necessary;

  • Ensure that all "house rules" are being followed, and apply accountability and corrective action, as needed;

  • Manage the facility and report needs and deficiencies to the Director;

  • Assist with the intake process and case management of residents;

  • Assist with integration and participation into the wider Hope Barrie programming and community;

  • Facilitating "devotional" times.

QUALIFICATIONS:
