Do you love cooking? Are you looking for a place where you can make a difference and serve good food to people from all walks of life? This is your opportunity to be a part of an amazing ministry that is changing lives for Jesus!


We are looking for skilled cooks with diverse culinary experiences. You will be working with a team who wants to exceed our guests' expectations by using their God-given talents to follow recipes and prepare delicious meals, keeping great sanitary standards through hot meals, cold food items and desserts.
