In the context of relationship, Servant Leaders are to provide supervision of any and all parts of resident life. They are to be aware of how residents are doing, as well as monitoring residents attitudes and behavior.

 

Dorm Life — A Servant Leader is responsible for working with the Servant Leader team to provide oversight and coverage of daily resident life in the dorm. The dorm is a place where a lot of the on-the-ground ministry to residents occurs. This is because it is the place where relationships with residents are forged and deepened. It is important that the attitude and ethos of the dorm is one of love and gratitude.

Work Crew — A Servant Leader is responsible for leading and overseeing residents on work crew. Work is a part of what it means to be human. We were created to work. At His Mansion, work is deeply valued and maintaining a good work ethic is important. Servant Leaders work alongside residents, modeling what a God-honoring work ethic looks like.

  1. Enforcing the program guidelines. A Servant Leader is responsible for enforcing guidelines with residents, particularly on the nights and weekends that he or she is ”on.” The program guidelines are to ensure that this community remains safe for all of its members, as well as, to provide loving accountability to residents who have come here seeking change.

Benefits:

  • Servant Leaders will receive a $300/month stipend. They may also raise tax-deductible financial support through churches and individuals.
  • Servant Leaders are provided room and board during their time of service.
  • Servant Leaders are allotted 10 days of vacation time for one year of service. Four ”flex days” can be used with the PA’s permission.
  • Servant Leaders who enter with education debt can apply for a scholarship that sends $100 each month to their lender for each month of service to His Mansion (a $1200 benefit for one year of service). Lenders will often defer loan repayment for public service at a place like His Mansion, but that must be arranged and initiated by the servant leader and is not the responsibility of His Mansion.
