When it is my responsibility to interview job applicants and ask a lot of questions, I appreciate when candidates ask me questions in return! One question that I always enjoy answering is: “What is your favorite part about working at ADF?”
I love working at ADF because I think it is a snapshot of what heaven will be like, theologically speaking. Really! We are ecumenical to the core and I truly love that. Growing up in a missionary home in Europe, we worked alongside other missionary agencies and local churches. As a kid, I never felt any competition to be better than other agencies or other churches. We encouraged each other whenever possible because all we did was for God’s glory.
I feel the same sense of community at ADF. We cheer one another on to keep the door open for the spread of the Gospel by advocating for religious liberty, the sanctity of life, and marriage and family. As an alliance-building legal organization, we have to live out what we preach every day: Catholic, Baptist, Presbyterian, Anglican, Eastern Orthodox, Assemblies of God, and Lutheran, among others, work side by side for God’s glory. And, when you add the cultural differences from our team members on three continents, representing roughly 16 different countries and cultures, working together takes hard work and commitment.
Every ADF team member makes that commitment. We pray together daily recognizing that our theme verse, John 15:5, is true: “Without Christ, we can do nothing.” Despite our faith differences, we are united in our efforts to win, not for our own recognition, but for God’s glory.
Now a question for you, dear Reader: Do you or someone you know have a passion to advocate for the right of people to freely live out their faith? Are you ready to work hard and commit to keeping the door open for the Gospel?
The HR team prays regularly for godly people to be a part of our team. If you think God might be calling you to work on the ADF team, check out our open positions here and fill out an application.
