We chatted with some of our staff about what it’s like working for Hoboken Grace. It takes all sorts of people with different talents and strengths to make what we do possible! From production to graphic design to operations (and much more), there are a lot of working parts! We are so grateful for everyone on our teams who each play such an important role to make our Sundays and beyond possible! As we heard from our staff, they shared with us their favorite part about their job and what it’s like working here.
Sarah N– “I was told by a dear friend when I joined staff at Hoboken Grace that it was going to be hard and would be a battle but the greatest thing about being on the front lines of the battle is that we have a front seat to see all that God is doing and how lives are changed. She couldn’t have been more spot on. My favorite thing about working on this team is that I get to see how God pursues people and truly transforms lives.
My second favorite is working with incredibly talented individuals that use their gifts to love others. In the tiniest ways and in the grand ways – they remind me why we serve and encourage me to follow well. No day is ever the same – we go big and I love it. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would have stayed in Hoboken or the NY area this long, but this is home. And my experience of community and team has made it so.”
Megan L– “My favorite thing about working for Hoboken Grace is the healthy community that is established in this work environment. No one working here has come just because they needed a job, it’s truly a labor of love. That carries through in all our day-to-day tasks, meetings, and outside the work environment as well. It’s been really reassuring and inspiring to work in such a healthy space, especially one that is consistently growing and encouraging.”
John M- “God has utilized Hoboken Grace for me to follow him and my heart on my path to loving others. After revealing His purpose for me to change careers, go back to school and become a counselor, I had apprehensions. However, Hoboken Grace came alongside and supported me through my entire journey from school to my clinical work and eventually accomplishing my dream of creating Hoboken Grace Counseling Center. They encouraged me to place my faith in God and trust that He will provide. Life hasn’t always been easy for me and all I have ever wanted was for others not to feel alone. I want others to know they are loved and allow them to be seen and heard. Becoming a counselor and working for Hoboken Grace has allowed me to do this very thing.”
Meghan H– “There’s a lot to love about my job at Hoboken Grace; from a graphic design standpoint I’ve been able to develop skills and explore new processes with far more freedom than I have anywhere else, and I love how focused we are in serving our city/local communities. But above it all, my coworkers are absolutely my favorite part of this job. I’ve had a fair number of roles in wildly different fields before this, and there is something so special about working in a place where the people around you not only care about doing their jobs well, but also care about the lives/wellness of those around them, beyond the 9-to-5. We spend around a third of our lives at work, so to be in a place that is in many ways an extension of my community has been a huge blessing (especially over the last few years.)”
Tony B– “I have really enjoyed working at Hoboken Grace since I first started about a year ago. The people are unlike any other. Everyone challenges each other to do the best they can not just professionally, but personally as well! I have personally grown since joining staff, and have loved seeing my team and others grow as well.”
Rachel K– “I was in a completely different field before coming to Hoboken Grace and throughout my job search, I was praying to be open and trust wherever God was leading me in this new chapter. I felt a strong nudge to want to do something more meaningful, but I didn’t know what that looked like. I had been a part of Hoboken Grace for three years, but I hadn’t given much thought to working for a church. I am so grateful God led me here. I love being a part of a work environment where we are all on the same mission and not just any mission, but the most meaningful one! I love being part of such an encouraging and caring team as we get to grow together personally, spiritually, and in our roles!”
