You will live incarnationally in the heart of the community. Your employer will be St Gabriel’s but you will also be mentored by the local Eden Coach and supported by the local Eden Manager.

If you are a pioneer with a heart for community transformation and an ability to grow and serve through team leadership then please look further.
