Job Description:

ADVENT GROUP MINISTRIES is a team of Christians with a mission of empowering people to restore relationships and break the destructive cycles of abuse and addiction through the hope and healing made possible by Christ’s love and quality treatment. We provide personal care through a professional staff of counselors and social workers and a network of well-trained volunteers.  Our vision is to reclaim hope, realize potential and restore lives.


We recognize that the needs of each client are unique; thus, the focus of the programs at Advent is individualized treatment. These needs may include the physical, emotional, spiritual, social, or a unique combination of them all. Though the agency, as a whole, strives to meet these wide-ranging essentials, each department focuses on providing treatment for one or two particular needs.


We are currently taking resumes for the position of a Resident Care Worker. This position is responsible for the overall care and supervision of six chemically dependent and/or behaviorally/emotionally disturbed adolescents. This job is ideal for someone who has majored in one of the social sciences, or simply has a heart to help hurting youth. Staff implement an individualized treatment plan for each youth within the context of an interdependent staff treatment team.


Are you ready for a challenge? At Advent the challenges are very real and we meet the challenges head on. Advent cares for teens who are addicted to drugs and alcohol. The majority of these young people are in trouble with the law. They come from abusive homes…from the streets. They are deeply wounded young people; rejected by virtually everyone in their lives, written off by society, they’ve been let down, pushed aside by those who should have cared the most. Advent may be their last chance to figure life out and get it together.


Minimum requirements: Bachelor degree in a social science field preferred; Previous volunteer work or employment working with disturbed adolescents encouraged; Willingness to live with adolescents and work with a therapeutic team of Christian professionals; 21 years of age and in possession of a valid driver’s license with at least 5 years of driving experience and a no more than 2 points on driving record.
