Employment at Heaven's Family
Are you sensing God's call to vocational ministry? Are you willing to lay down your life for the sake of His kingdom? Do you have a vision to serve "the least of these" among His family around the world? Then there might be a place for you to join the Pittsburgh-based staff of Heaven's Family.
As you explore this possibility, the first step you should take is to carefully study what you find at HeavensFamily.org so that you become knowledgeable of our ministry and its two divisions, Shepherd Serve and Orphan's Tear. You should read David Servant's books that are posted there, particularly The Disciple-Making Minister and The Great Gospel Deception, as these contain biblical principles that reflect our core beliefs. It is essential that you understand and identify with those core beliefs.
The second step is to honestly evaluate your character. Jesus must be Lord of your life, and you must be one of His disciples. Your life must already reflect that Jesus is your Lord and you are His disciple, evidenced by sacrificial deeds of love for His body. You must be honest, hard-working, and a team player. Heaven's Family is not place for "lone rangers." It is a place for servants.
Heaven's Family is like numerous other mission organizations—many of our staff raise their own support. So the third step is to honestly evaluate if you can be self-supported, either from your own resources, or by means of raising your support from your church, family and friends. We can advise you through that process. But you must evaluate if you have a network of people who would likely be willing to support you financially if you dedicated yourself to serve at Heaven's Family.
The fourth step is to email your resume' with a cover letter to humanresources@HeavensFamily.org. We will review your resume' and reply within two weeks. If we are interested in further exploring the possibility of your joining our Pittsburgh-based staff, we will ask for letters of recommendation from those who know you and request that you to come for an interview.
Working for Heaven's Family is a calling that is not for everyone! If God calls and sends you, however, we want you!
