A Life Full of Meaning and Purpose

At Breakthrough we seek to create an intense, cutting-edge ministry environment that inspires each staff member to individual and organizational greatness. Our hope is to provide a culture where you can contribute your gifts for the benefit of all.

Our staff provides great training and opportunities for many marginalized people, but our impact doesn’t stop there. Breakthrough’s culture transforms and challenges staff, board members, and volunteers as well.

If you are seeking meaning, purpose, intense challenges, diversity, and unity in a Christ-centered organization we invite you to apply.
