    Hope Barrie, Barrie, ON is recruiting for the position of Ministry Associate - Case Manager at Hope House Barrie.   

    Hope Barrie is the only full-time, Gospel-centred ministry of its kind in Downtown Barrie. We seek to Reach people with the Good News of Jesus Christ, Restore His reign in our lives and in the world that we touch, and Reproduce followers of Jesus Christ who reproduce followers of Jesus Christ. We follow this mission in the context of helping to alleviate chronic poverty with a primary focus on housing, addiction, food insecurity, and job skills.

    We know that the opposite of poverty is connection, and we emphasize relationship-building and participation in Christ-centred community as the answer to poverty. Hope Barrie is a group of ministries that include The Hope Centre, Hope House Barrie, Higher Grounds Coffee House, and Hope City Church Barrie. Hope City Church Barrie is a member of the Evangelical Missionary Church of Canada, Vision Ministries Canada, and the Barrie Christian Council and OneChurch Barrie.  

    Pastors and Leaders, would you consider making this information available to your congregation and consider referring a suitable candidate to us?

    Hope House Barrie is both a supported residential housing programme for men who are primarily in recovery from addiction, trauma, and poverty, and provides community supports and counselling for both men and women in non-residential programmes.  

    The Case Manager conducts intake into housing and programmes, creates and facilitates case management plans for clients/residents, manages the day-to-day operation of Hope House Barrie, and participates in a team-based environment across all Hope Barrie ministries for the development and deployment of programmes.

    The Case Manager position is a highly relational role with a primary focus on individual discipleship and community development.  Everything that we do at all of Hope Barrie, while seeking to meet the needs of people to overcome chronic poverty issues, is assessed through a lens of Christian Discipleship as we strive to help people to become everything that God created them to be through a growing relationship with and the transforming power of Jesus Christ.  Ministry Associates and volunteer ministry leaders at Hope Barrie are primarily disciplers.

    A suitable candidate is a person who:

    • Is a devoted follower of Jesus Christ with a mature faith;
    • Able to clearly articulate their faith and lead a person into a relationship with Jesus;
    • Possesses a strong knowledge of the Bible and is able to lead Bible studies with groups and individuals, and is able to bring Biblical wisdom to bear on common life circumstances and decision-making;
    • Possesses a clear gift of discernment and wisdom;
    • Is able to build and lead teams of volunteers, and is able to coach;
    • Ideally, but not necessarily, is a graduate of a Social Work programme, Addiction Counselling Programme, and/or Bible College, OR demonstrates a suitable combination of life experience and wisdom;
    • Ideally, but not necessarily, possesses "lived experience" with addiction, trauma, or other mental health issues, and poverty;
    • Is an excellent communicator, a leader, a team player, and can function with a minimal amount of direct supervision.

    The Case Manager position has flexible hours of work, and the individual may be called upon to be present for a mix of days and evenings, and for emergencies.

    It is possible, but not required, that the right person in this role could grow their role into a Pastoral position with an emphasis on Christian Discipleship and Leadership.  

    Hope House Barrie began as a "pilot project" in late 2019, has graduated almost two dozen men through its housing and addiction recovery programme, has graduated twenty men and women through full-time community trauma-informed care day programming, and is currently seeking to grow both its capacity and establish its longevity and sustainability through staffing and a new, yet-to-be determined permanent location.

    To apply or to inquire further, contact Pastor Kevin Mast at, with a cover letter, resume, and pastoral references.
