Christ Community Chapel
07/2012 - Present
As a Facilities member my duties are to keep up with cleaning of facility, make sure events were setup to the specifications of the planners, and to stay busy managing the campus including but not limited to cleaning rooms, carpet scrubbing, lawn care, window washing, delivering packages, building/fixing things. While being part of a team there is also a big part of the job where I work without supervision. The ability to work by myself I learned to stay busy and be independent in my duties.
In addition to Facilities I also work for the Visual Art ministry at Christ Community Chapel. I work to help the team finish projects and meet deadlines. I even designed and painted a banner that ended up being shown in Germany as part of a missions trip!
