Finding quality, capable, and passionate workers is central to what we do. We rely on such people to work for justice and serve with compassion among the world’s poorest people. We believe that it is critical that all employees of Love Justice South Africa be sensitive to God’s Spirit in their service.
We want to work through the indigenous church by finding and empowering those who are already doing this work—those who already have a calling and have shown themselves faithful. We are committed to providing the necessary tools and support in an effort to empower them to carry out the work God has called them to do.
We believe that true leadership is based in humility. Jesus told His disciples, “If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you.” (John 13:14-15 NKJV)
Therefore, we seek humble yet capable people who do not seek personal glory, wealth, or power, but rather the will of God in all things. In the developing world, the potential for corruption is great, especially when money and positions are offered to those not rooted in humility. For this reason, we prayerfully consider every candidate, looking for those who see their opportunity to serve, not as a stepping stone for themselves, but as a calling to participate in God’s work to the poor and suffering.
