The main goal of the Facilities Team Leader is to provide well-maintained and safe facilities and related equipment for Crossroads as well as be a good technical support to the service teams of Sound and Multimedia. This role also strives to be a strong leader and mentor to the team of custodians and facility-related volunteers who assist this position.
A lot has happened since the previous update in July so here is a quick review of what we have done, where we are, and where we are heading in the near future.
We set our advertising in motion in early July. By the end of September 200 pastors had applied for our Teaching Pastor position, evidence that Crossroads is viewed far and wide as an attractive place to serve! Needless to say, considering this number of candidates has been an arduous task for our team.
Abortion in your past? Are you struggling with guilt, shame, regret, fear, anger, depression? Do you experience a sense of emptiness? Or are you not sure what to feel at all? Have you never talked about your abortion? Do you feel as if no one understands what you have been/are going through?
There is hope and healing.
On Friday afternoon of November 11th you can join a special Serve the City event to help the less advantaged in Amsterdam. As a LIFEgroup or a single person you can participate in a service project like walking with elderly, handicrafts with handicapped people, bingo with elderly and many more projects like painting or collecting food for the food bank.
