Then consider joining I AM 24/7 as the new Program Director.
Research shows that some people may not apply for a role if they don’t check all the boxes of a job description. If you don’t check every box listed, that’s okay. We would love to hear from you if you are someone who has a passion for serving Christ and has both relational and administrative gifts.
