Do you enjoy building relationships? Do you desire to show the love of Jesus, intentionally connecting with our DTES community members by listening, praying and providing hope? Are you adaptable and collaborative? Are you client-centered and service-oriented? If so, then we may have an opportunity for you. We are looking for an Outreach Worker on our Hastings Chaplaincy and Outreach team.
