Qualified candidates will have a belief in Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior, affirmation of the Holy Bible as God’s Word, and historical orthodox Christian beliefs. They will also have exceptional knowledge of students' developmental needs, connect well with multi-generations, have a strong familiarity with reformed theology, and biblical character that exudes Christian Witness.
