Other Details

Christian Union seeks a qualified individual to serve as a Women’s Ministry Fellow to students in an academically  rigorous setting in New York City. Ministry Fellows are responsible for ministering to Christian and non-Christian  students, developing their leadership abilities, modeling a radical seeking God lifestyle, teaching  Christian students the Scriptures, sharing the Gospel with non-believers and overseeing programs and social events. 


  1. Embrace and Embody CU’s Distinctive
    • Seeking God Lifestyle
      • Christian Union emphasizes a mindset and behaviors considered normative by Christians for  centuries, starting with the book of Acts. A seeking-God lifestyle includes humbling oneself through  fasting, extraordinary prayer (including day and night), large intake of Scripture, repentance, obedience to God in every regard, perseverance in seeking God wholeheartedly, extended times of  gathering with fellow believers, and intentionally calling other Christians to seek God with great  diligence. When Christians seek the Lord wholeheartedly they can expect fresh fillings and  outpourings of the Spirit.
    • Christian Unity
      • Maior Autem His Est Caritas (“the greatest of these is love”) is inscribed around the center of  Christian Union’s logo as a reminder that God’s love is central, and His love is the inspiration to  uphold Christian love and unity among Christians. Christian Union board members, faculty, staff,  financial partners and alumni are committed to loving one another and fellow Christians as  members of the body of Christ. 
    • Intellectual Orientation
      • Christian Union tailors its ministry to people of high intellectual capacity whose knowledge of  Scripture ranges from non-existent to well-developed. Christian Union associates are selected for  their ability to assess needs and to lead at this level. Christian Union knows that all wisdom and  knowledge are in Jesus Christ and therefore sees harmony and not contradiction between  intellectual pursuits and strong faith.
    • Organizational Excellence
      • The nature and significance of Christian Union’s calling compel a culture of discipline and  accountability. While the primary “products” as an organization are God’s glory and changed lives,  which can be hard to measure, the ministry does its best to track inputs and outputs to be as effective as possible. The ministry aspires to be as organizationally robust as some of the best well run, for-profit firms. 
    • Professional Growth
      • Christian Union believes that God, in His wisdom, deposited gifts and abilities in all men and  women. As these are recognized and developed, and as additional skills are imparted through  training and feedback, associates have the opportunity to reach their full potential. CU prizes  ongoing growth and spiritual and professional development of Christian Union’s staff and faculty because it honors God, helps further the mission, and contributes to the flourishing of the people. 
    • Bold Faith
      • Christian Union values bold, expansive faith. Everything the Bible says about God, humanity and  the universe is wholly true; therefore Christian Union moves forward in confidence of what God  will do for those who love and obey Him. Christian Union believes Him for great and seemingly impossible changes because if He can create the entire universe, He can do more than one can ask  or imagine.
