Posted date: Mar-14-2018

Location: Spencer, IN

We prefer a couple willing to invest in our church and community. At present, we are budgeted at $420 a week for a Daycare Director. Would you pray about supplementing your income and/or having your spouse work full time in the community? Our people mostly work in town or in Bloomington (20 minutes away).

We would be especially blessed if your spouse was willing to work with youth on a volunteer basis! (We model this ethic as a ministerial couple.) 

Let's talk!
