There are three main things we think will make you a good fit for the team at 519:

  1. You are genuine. In all things we aim to be genuine—excellent, but not unnecessarily polished.  Our whole team tries not to take ourselves too seriously, so that we can take our work seriously.  A willingness to be vulnerable and open about your spiritual journey is as crucial as your ability to love well and live differently.
  2. You really love cleaning.  We are looking for someone who isn’t afraid to get their hands dirty and create a spotless environment for our church/conference center. You might secretly watch YouTube videos about cleaning hacks or have Pinterest boards that are full of ideas for creating clutter free spaces.
  3. You are all in. We are a young church that is motivated and continues to flourish.  We expect you to be as committed to the work of the church (not just cleaning) as we are, and that you will thrive in our mission-centric environment.

There are three main things we think you will love about working at 519:

  1. We are fun. We work hard and play hard. We laugh a lot and are at our best when we are friends on a mission together, pitching in and helping each other out.
  2. There is an enormous opportunity for impact here.  The work we do is sometimes tiring, but always enriching. We are serving in one of the fastest growing, least-churched areas in North Carolina, and we welcome people weekly who are giving church one last chance. If you come, we will build it…the next 2-5 years will be some of our most exciting ones.
  3. We really do love well and live differently.  This church has a heart for loving and serving other people, and we do it in creative ways.  This is a great job for anyone with an entrepreneurial spirit, who wants the stability of a large church and the ability to risk new kingdom ventures. This is a place you can grow as a disciple, in your leadership abilities and professionally.
