Cityteam Portland is seeking an experienced administrative professional to support our leadership team. If you thrive on details, reports, bookkeeping, coffee, event planning, and project management, come join our team of Kingdom-minded difference makers.

To fit in with our team, you'll need to be flexible, teachable, able to work both independently and collaboratively, have a great sense of humor, and be passionate and willing to care for the most vulnerable people in our community. If you love Jesus, want to be on the front line of ministry to the addicted, homeless, and marginalized in Portland's inner east side, we’d love to hear from you.
