You will live on our campus in Jacmel, Haiti and serve as part of our in-country leadership team. You will focus on strategically connecting and building relationships with churches, pastors, our staff, and others in Haiti. You will then develop strategic plans in line with Children’s Hope’s overall vision and strategy to meet needs and make disciples of Jesus Christ (through evangelism, discipleship, and church planting ministry) in partnership with the Haitian Church. A key component of this role will be planning for and hosting short-term mission teams and other volunteers.

Our Community Ministry Director lives at the Mission House on our beautiful campus in Haiti. You will enter this role as both a language (Haitian Creole) and cultural learner, with a priority on building meaningful relationships with local friends and partners. You’ll also be relating regularly with mission team leaders and other partners in the U.S.- especially those preparing to come and serve with you. In other words, this is a highly-relational role!

As part of this role, your housing in Haiti, transportation, ministry expenses, and certain other expenses will be covered. You will also receive a salary. You’ll be asked to help raise support for these expenses, and we’ll help you with that process. This opportunity is definitely not for someone just looking for a job- it is for someone who is sensing a call from the Lord to minister in Haiti and serve as the hands and feet of Jesus to children, families, and communities in need.
