Job Summary

Are you and your spouse being called to be Christ’s witness to rebellious kids, neglected kids, selfish kids, and kids who have been exposed to trauma? If you respond to Christ’s calling to the Oblong Children’s Christian Home ministry, some kids will curse you, some will doubt your motives, some will utter all manner of evil against you. But some will respond to Christ’s love and guidance coming through your heart, eyes, and hands. They will call you blessed. Their lives will be changed for this life and for eternity. Some will seek you out for Christian guidance throughout their entire lives. Some will bring their children to visit you. If you are spiritually mature, love kids, and have a solid marriage, God may be calling you and your spouse to a houseparenting ministry. Houseparenting is an opportunity to present the love and teachings of Jesus Christ to up to 8 youth in a family live-in setting. Oblong Children’s Christian Home is seeking a mature Christian couple to fill a vacancy created by a recently retired houseparenting couple. Houseparents are professionals who work as a team with the counselor/case worker, and executive director to provide a family environment where God changes the lives of youth and the placing families. 

The Oblong Children’s Christian Home offers a competitive pay package, retirement contribution (16% of pay) and fully pays health insurance for the houseparent couple. Housing, food and utilities are also provided. The ministry is a family-style live-in opportunity. Houseparents receive five days per month off when the young people go to the relief home. Two- to four weeks vacation and sick leave are also provided.
