FAQs

All submissions to one of our open positions are reviewed by an actual person! You will receive an automated confirmation of successful submission, but after that, all correspondence will be from someone on our recruiting staff.

What is the Dress Code?

The professional atmosphere at Focus on the Family is maintained, in part, by the image that employees present to business associates, guests, and vendors. Neat, modest, professional, business-like attire and grooming is representative of Focus on the Family employees and should be reflective of Christ in us as a witness.

Are all your positions located in Colorado Springs?

Most of our positions are located at our ministry headquarters in Colorado Springs. We have also have employees in Branson, MO at our Focus Marriage Institute.

If I’m divorced, can I work at Focus on the Family?

We believe that God’s original intent and design for marriage was to be a lifelong, permanent relationship between one man and one woman. We also realize that we live in a fallen world and unpredictable things can occur. Divorce is not an automatic disqualification. Each situation is looked at on a case by case basis.

Do I have to be a Christian to work at Focus?

We are a non-denominational Christian ministry, founded in the Judeo-Christian faith and rooted in Biblical principles. It is a requirement that every employee, regardless of the position they hold, be able to sign our statement of faith and provide a personal testimony of a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Why, if I've applied for several positions, I never get an interview?

Focus on the Family screens all resumes, and conducts many interviews for open positions. We are happy with the large number of applicants that we receive for each position, but a large number of applicants results in a very competitive selection process. We cannot conduct an interview for every applicant; therefore it is important to differentiate yourself through your resume.
