My job at Awaken came at the perfect time - a time when I wasn’t really sure what to expect next in my life. I had been gearing up for a full-time position somewhere else, and when that suddenly fell through, God made sure that the door to Awaken was wide open for me to step through, no matter how reluctant I was at first. It still blows my mind to think about how my job at Awaken lined up so perfectly and was exactly what I needed at the time without even realizing it.

The staff at Awaken welcomed my husband and I with open arms from the very beginning and the friendships we have made here are definitely irreplaceable. I know that I have never been a part of a work environment where everyone is literally on your team and on your side, which makes working at Awaken so great.

Working here has helped mature me, grow me, and challenge me in ways that I would have never imagined. I can honestly say that in the time that I have been working at Awaken, I have grown into a better version of myself thanks to the pastors, fellow staff members, and my ability to focus on God more. I can also say with full confidence that my husband has stepped out of his shell as well during my time on staff at the church, which has been a true joy to watch. On top of all that, the fact that Awaken actually allows us to put our family first and gives us the flexibility to do so also means the world to us as a still newlywed couple with our first child on the way.  All around, being on staff at Awaken has been a blessing to both me and my family.
