WHERE: Magalia Community Church (MCC) is a non-denominational/Interdenominational church. Founded in 1896, yet it is a living, breathing church for the 21st century. MCC’s nine-acre campus is nestled in Northern California’s Sierra Foothills. The area around the church campus was devastated by the worst fire in California history in November, 2018. Since the fire, MCC has run the largest disaster relief services in the area through our Resource & Recovery Center on the church grounds. Hundreds of people each day – THOUSANDS each month – receive food, clothing, household items, some furniture, counseling and benevolence funding to assist in rebuilding their lives. We are privileged and blessed to be the “hands & feet of Jesus”, living our life as we are taught in Matthew 25:35.

·         Has experience working in a team environment

·         Emphasis on church growth/church planting especially after a disaster
