Staff Needs

Is God calling you to serve in a mission school in an urban setting? Urban Mennonite Ministries is always looking for people from the Mennonite faith to staff their two schools. Generally, there are three basic positions: elementary teachers; infant and preschool teachers/caregivers; and cook/domestics.

Hampden Christian School staff needs 2021-2022

Hampden Christian School currently has 8 classrooms; infants, toddlers, 2 year-olds, 3 year-olds, 4 year-olds, Kindergarten – Grade 2, Grades 3-5, and Grades 6-8.

  • Maintenance

This person would work with our maintenance/operations manager to take care of our five properties in this neighborhood. Depending on interest, this person could also be involved in the elementary school, teaching a class or two, such as PE. Potentially this person could also do some substituting or breaks in the daycare classrooms.

We envision this person being a mature and capable young man. He would likely share a house with another single brother that attends our church.

Any applicants that commit for 2 years upfront will be eligible to begin employment with 3rd-year pay and benefits.

If you or someone you know may be interested in applying for any of these positions, please contact Darrell Hershberger at darrell.hershberger@hampdenchristianschool.org or text/call 540-292-6827.


  1. Applicants need to be at least 20 years of age.
  2. All positions require a criminal and child abuse and neglect background check.
  3. All positions require a high school diploma or GED. If you do not have one already, you should work on getting one before coming.

New Growth Learning Company

The school/daycare at Williamsport has two classes right now, one for children 2 and up and another for younger children.  We would like to add more classrooms in the near future.

We are looking for one more teacher this year. We need staff with 2 years of experience caring for children and/or a degree in Education. As we are new and growing continued flexibility will be required of our teachers.

Please note that we do run daycare year-round. All teachers are expected to work most of the summer. If you or someone you know may be interested in applying for any of these positions, please contact Conrad Shank at cshank@newgrowthlc.org.
