Campus Staff Minister - Massachusetts Institute of Technology

InterVarsity Christian Fellowship’s Graduate & Faculty Ministries is seeking campus staff to serve the 6,700 bright and creative minds of the graduate schools, 1’100 full-time faculty and thousands of researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. This campus is so associated with excellence and innovation that when the television shows and movies of our popular culture want to give fictional credentials to prove a character is a top scientist, they invariably say “they went to MIT!”

MIT is consistently rated in the top universities in the world, and if the earnings of all the companies founded by faculty and alumni were totaled as one country, it would create the world’s eleventh largest economy.

MIT boasts:

  • 81 Nobel Laureates
  • 45 Rhodes Scholars
  • 52 National Medal of Science Winners
  • 2 Fields Medal Winners
  • 38 MacArthur Fellows
  • Thousands of fellows and national academy members

Yet brilliance and excellence do not always add up to wisdom and character. If MIT is “inventing the future,” campus staff have the opportunity to challenge these creative students and faculty to care about a future of eternal impact.

We are gathering a team of staff who will model and encourage the integration of faith and work, reach cynics and seekers, as well as provide pastoral care and simple friendship to a population that often struggles with knowing about everything but their own hearts and souls. Candidates should be self-starters who demonstrate a passion for building witnessing communities, strong interpersonal skills, prior Christian leadership, strategic thinking, and the ability to navigate a dynamic relationship with the university. Theological education and/or advanced degrees are considered an asset.

The next MIT GFM staff will meet regularly with both the MIT and the Boston GFM team, assist in creating and implementing Boston-wide programs and raise personal and ministry funds. 

How to Apply

Only applicants who meet the following qualifications will be considered for next steps:

  • A graduate degree is preferred. A completed Bachelor's degree is required
  • Staff must raise the funds needed for their salary, benefits and ministry expenses from churches and individuals
  • Additional qualifications required for specific positions
