Men's discipleship/employment opportunity

Hi guys--

If you or someone you know has a passion for discipling college-aged guys, please read on! Help spread the word...this is a great opportunity to learn hands-on what "doing life" in community looks like.

Thank you!



We need your help in hiring 2 new house leaders (HL) for Alpha Academy, a SLO mentoring/discipleship program.

Our current HLs are approaching the end of their one-year commitment. They have been great and are moving on to God's next call on their life.

The HLs are mentors and disciplers to our students (2-5 men) who are usually guys 18-22 years old. They need to have a heart for one on one relationships. They need to be patient and strong enough to lead the students in responsibilities and enforce discipline when needed. (Handyman, ag, and construction experience is a plus but not required.)

They need to be mature men in Christ, be realists in working with guys who are seeking to learn and grow and get a plan for their lives. Often our HLs have come through their own struggles and can relate well to what our students are going through.

Our 2 house leaders are responsible for Alpha Academy from 5 PM to 8 AM weeknights and Saturday and Sunday all day. They split the days and evenings- each responsible for half the days. They can trade as needed. They are also involved in our dog kennel operation.

These are usually early 20's guys just graduated from Cal Poly although we have had some who were finishing classes at Poly too. They can have other 8-5 job or class commitments.

Benefits are...

  • Making a real difference in students' lives
  • Free room and meals at the Ranch. (The Ranch is NOT remote. It is by SLO Airport)
  • $200 per month
  • HL's receive one-on-one mentoring to develop personal growth and leadership.
This is a great leadership lab experience.

This job is great for someone who has just graduated and wants to stay in SLO.

Please let me know of any potential folks you can think of. Call Christian or Jack at 805-506-0433. Thanks!
