The successful candidate will be expected to:
Lead the Foundation to a new level of growth during the next 10 years;
Expand the donor development ministry of the Foundation;
Advance pastoral and lay leadership training;
Raise the profile and visibility of the Foundation so that its mission, values, accomplishments, and unique track record are ever more widely recognized; and
