Team Dynamics: What We’re Looking For…
Character: A ministry team, by definition, must operate with a lot of trust; character is the foundation of trustworthiness. We expect each other to operate with Christ-like maturity and to be quick to make things right when things go off the rails. While it’s true that we’re all in process in many ways, we expect a foundation of humility, honesty, and unselfishness from each other.
Competence: We aren’t just looking for “good-hearted” people. If we’re compensating a position, it’s because we need particular skill sets in order to catalyze the health and growth of the entire church. We’re not interested in creating a performance culture which often carries toxicity, but we do expect excellence.
Chemistry: It’s not enough to be a “good person” and competent. Teams that produce great fruit are ones that have people who complement and round out each other. They’re teams that flow together and understand each other. They operate with a shared imagination, a sense of intuition (which is not a substitute for a lot of really good communication). It’s not enough to just like working together; we need to be headed the same direction. If you’re interested in a job at Eucharist Church, please spend a sufficient amount of time looking over this website so you can know if we’re a good fit for you.
Commitment: Ministry in San Francisco is quite an experience—there’s a challenge factor that can make it rewarding, but make no mistake, it’s difficult and frustrating on many occasions. It’s expensive, it’s hard soil, spiritually speaking, and it’s relationally frustrating at times when large portions of the city turn over due to transiency. For a team to be healthy, we need a measure of continuity and perseverance. We’re not asking for the rest of your life, just a healthy sense of expectations and good communication. We realize that Christ calls us; our job is to obey.
Camaraderie: Last, but not least, we are looking for comrades. Ministry is exponentially more sustainable and enjoyable when everyone knows that “we’re in it together.” We celebrate and grieve together. We experience the trenches together. We laugh and enjoy ourselves because we like each other.
