The Bible tells us… “The harvest is plentiful, the workers are few.” And we know this to be true!
GAiN is working to involve people in finding ways to respond with humility and generosity to the broken and hurting world we live in.
We need more people to achieve this aim.
Do you have skills in project management and operations? Are you interested in finance or communications?
Do you have skills in managing social media? If the answer to any of these questions is yes then GAiN needs you!
If this vision has grabbed your attention, and you want to become part of the work full-time, you may be interested in joining the GAiN team.
Your role could be coordinating much-needed projects to a particular country, informing GAiN donors and partners of the vital work that their support is enabling, or providing efficient reporting and management of finances associated with specific projects. What you contribute on an operational level would be an essential part of demonstrating unconditional love to suffering people across the world.
We are currently looking for people to join us full or part-time to work with our central GAiN team based in Sydney in the following roles. Perhaps you have a passion to use your gifts to serve in this way or you know someone who does.

Like many other Christian charities, Power to Change team members raise funds to cover their own salary and expenses.
