Housekeeping Manager

We are looking for someone with a strong work ethic and a desire to live and work in a close community to serve. We are passionate about our mission statement and are looking for a like-minded person who is willing to serve alongside us. Please thoughtfully consider each part of our mission statement, job description, and description of our ministry and community before you apply.

Most communication will be handled by email at first over the next few weeks until the position has been filled. Initial inquiries may not be responded to immediately so as to give us time to consider the many applicants.

To inspire Christ-like change through
Outdoor Adventure
Authentic Relationships and
Biblical Truth

The makeup of our community determines a large part of what it is like to live and work here. We have about 80 people who live on-site year round, comprised of: full-time staff, their families, gap-year students, and retreat guides. Since we are far from any large towns or cities, all of our full-time staff lives on-site. One example of our distance from town is that it takes 1 hour and 15 minutes to get to the closest Walmart in Kerrville. Camp Eagle is a beautiful place with many natural resources but calls for somewhat remote living. Our staff is fairly active and involved within our community and ministry. Generally we like good food, playing outdoors, and working hard as we are very passionate about our mission statement. We encourage applicants, at a further stage in the hiring process, to visit and ask many questions from various staff about what it is like to live and work here. Camp Eagle recently went through a fast growth period and is seeking to be excellent in all we do and become a leader in our industry. However, just like each of us, we have many shortcomings but hope to use even those to serve Jesus Christ. Does that sound like something you want to do?

• The Bible is God's written revelation to man; and that it is verbally inspired, authoritative and without error in the original manuscript.
• Jesus Christ is God's Son, born of a virgin. His sinless life, miracles, death on the cross to provide for the redemption, bodily resurrection and ascension into heaven, present ministry of intercession for all who believe, and his return in power and glory.
• God's Holy Spirit performs the miracle of new birth in an unbeliever and indwells believers, enabling them to live a godly life.
• Man was created in the image of God, but because of sin, was alienated from God. Only through faith in Christ alone for salvation, which was made possible by His death and resurrection, can that alienation be removed and eternal life secured.
