Being our Stewardship & Development Officer isn’t just for anyone. It’s for the professional looking for something else, something . . . more. Remember how proud you were when you landed that great job? Before you started watching the clock? Sure, your work’s o.k., your colleagues are pretty nice, and the coffee’s good. But you’re keeping your eyes on other job opportunities. You’re still very ambitious. But you want new energy, in yourself, your colleagues, and in your organization.

That’s great, especially if you’re an aspiring development professional and want to radically alter the way Catholicism is perceived and received in western Oregon. Because that’s what we’re looking for: the right person who gets excited about witnessing to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, is motivated to share His love and hope with the world, and who sees the opportunity to maximize others’ potential as more than a mere job, for you it’s a calling to the most meaningful work imaginable.
