The Christian Shelter is
inviting applications for the paid position of Night Staff Worker – both female
and male. We are looking for people who
have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and are being called by Him
to minister to people who are homeless, hurting and in need. Applicants need to have a high school diploma
and be active members of a local church.
Some experience in working with homeless people is desirable. A Night Staff Worker is responsible for
supervising the Shelter guests and activities from 4:45 PM to 8:00 AM the next
morning. Night Staff will have their own
bed room for sleeping between the hours of 11:00 PM and 6:00 AM. Two Night Staff workers will share this duty as
a team each night. Generally Night Staff Workers are scheduled to
work one, two or three nights per week.
In the month of September, 2018, Christian Shelter had the highest number of children ever staying in the Shelter (46), and the highest percent occupancy of beds and rooms in the Shelter (92%) – that is all of the rooms in the Shelter, and most of the beds in those rooms were occupied.
A group of 8 students from Rosemont College in Pennsylvania came to Christian Shelter on a two day mission project. The young students helped lay floor tiles and paint walls in the upstairs apartment then joined us for lunch. The next day they came back and served dinner to our Shelter guests. Their abundant joy and enthusiasm was a blessing to staff and guests alike.
In June, Salisbury Mayor Jake Day paid a visit to Christian Shelter. Shelter Board and staff members had a chance to sit down with Mayor Day to explore the possible use of a piece of city-owned land directly behind our building for a children’s playground. Further exploration is needed, so please pray that God will make a way. Meanwhile, the Mayor paused to pose for a picture with the Shelter’s new Prep Cook, Brother Anthony Johnson.
Thank you for your interest in the mission and ministry of the Christian Shelter. The Lord has blessed, preserved and protected the Christian Shelter for these past thirty-eight (38) years and our hearts are filled with gratitude to God and our Lord Jesus Christ.
