Caretakers Tribe

“Pass through, pass through the gates!  Prepare the way for the people.  Build up, build up the highway!  Remove the stones.  Raise a banner for the nations.”  Isaiah 62:10


"When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own house, his possessions are safe.” Luke 11:21

Caretaker is a wonderful word because it covers so many important tasks and responsibilities.  It is someone put in charge of goods, property, or another person; it is a guardian. It is the care of something. And it is one who guards, protects, or defends.
   
The Caretakers Tribe has the daunting task of accomplishing all these things.  It is responsible for the maintenance, care, and repair of our facilities, whether the grass needs cutting, the parking lots shoveling, the toilets fixing, the light bulbs changing, or a thousand other things. This Tribe must take care of it all.  At the same time, the Caretakers Tribe provides hands-on training to our Sojourners in many skilled trades – training and experience that can be used in a wide range of jobs out in the community.

The Caretakers Tribe also has responsibility for guarding, and protecting all our property, and everyone who visits, works at, volunteers at, or lives at each of our facilities.  Security is unfortunately a very necessary thing these days, and it is this Tribe that is totally responsible for the task.  From watching the parking areas and grounds for unwelcome visitors, apprehending the shoplifter, or sadly enough, breaking up a fight or dispute, it is up to the Caretakers Tribe to be sure it is all done swiftly, quietly, and with whatever force may be necessary to stop any kind of threat to the people who are at our facilities.

  • Temple Maintenance Collegia
