4. What is a Houseparent?
If you have a desire to work with children and a calling to work in ministry with your spouse, Houseparenting at Calvary Children’s Home may be the right fit for you. Being a Houseparent couple is a mission calling. It is a parental and mission-oriented calling to work with hurting children, a calling to help children heal from their past hurts and discover a purpose for their future; grounded on the foundation of a strong faith.
The Housparenting couple role at Calvary is the backbone of our ministry. The Houseparents are role models teaching our children what a mom and dad look like in the biblical model of the family. Houseparents come from different career and financial backgrounds and represent many walks of life. What they have in common is a desire to serve the Lord, a positive attitude, a curious spirit, patience, strong moral character, compassion, dedication, determination, and most importantly, a desire to biblically parent children who have no traditional family of their own.
Calvary believes biblical parenting is a calling. Our Houseparents carry out that role full-time and dedicate their lives to helping children heal and teaching children what a strong, biblical family structure looks like. Houseparents have the potential to make generational change in the lives of the children in their care. Children who are taught the Godly family model have a much better chance of teaching the same to their future families. This can create generational change that Housparents are a part of.
