Job Description

Resident Life Ministries is a faith-based, non-profit started by a real estate development company in Manhattan, owned by two brothers who love the Lord and who want people to hear about Jesus. Resident Life Coordinators (RLCs) serve as ‘urban missionaries’ in apartment complexes – welcoming residents, running events, and building relationships with the goal of sharing the Gospel!

There are two openings for RLC’s in Manhattan, KS and one in Stillwater, OK.

Resident Life Coordinators

Four Pillars

  • Authentic
    • Resident Life aims to equip our teams to enter into the pains and intricacies of people’s stories. We meet regularly to discuss what it looks like to develop a curiosity about others that foster’s genuine relationships. Through the context of authentic relationships, the seeds of the Gospel can be sown.
  • Biblical
    • Various courses help develop our teams in their knowledge and application of the Word of God. We spend time together each week learning together, with the aim of also growing in our love for our neighbor and our desire for them to know the Gospel.
  • Global
    • We believe the God’s heart is for the whole world. A vast and beautiful God is revealed more beautifully in ‘every tribe, tongue, and nation’. We aim to see our neighbors here and across the world won for the Lord. And that we would grow in our knowledge of the people he has created.
  • Missional
    • The heartbeat of Resident Life is to live a life on mission, partnering with the Lord to love the neighbors he has given us.
