Job Description:



Seeking Leaders to Take the Gospel to Women Worldwide


Do you have a heart to share the Gospel? Are you burdened to help women start a relationship with the God of the Universe through His Son Jesus Christ? Are you the kind of person who likes to grow a movement?


Are you looking for us?


We are looking for you!


Stonecroft began 78 years ago when one woman, Helen Duff Baugh, started 25 women’s prayer groups to ask God to reveal “new avenues by which to share His love” with others. God answered and Stonecroft was born. Since then, we have equipped tens of thousands of women to take the Gospel to their friends, neighbors, and coworkers—in the United States and around the world. Stonecroft volunteers pray, host outreach events and activities, form small groups and Bible Studies for outreach, and learn to share Jesus one-on-one.


We take the Gospel to women where they are—not expecting them to come to us or visit church, and to women as they are—whatever place or stage of life, not expecting them to change for God’s approval, knowing He will transform them in wonderful ways.


Join Stonecroft’s great adventure as we engage thousands of young and diverse volunteers, as we increase our impact for the Gospel here and abroad, and as perhaps God uses us to spark revival!


We are looking for people who will grow with us, those with a passion for the Gospel and an insightful knowledge how to reach their nonbelieving peers—through social media, small groups, in one-on-one situations—whatever it takes.


We have immediate needs for full-time, paid staff members, as outlined in the attached Job Description—but this is just the start.


Begin today. Send your resume and cover letter to
