The Director of Mission Advancement must be a spiritually mature, born-again Christian who is in full agreement with Emmaus Worldwide’s Statement of Faith, Mission, Vision, and Core Values. This person should have experience in the handling of major gifts, capital and annual campaigns, corporate and foundation solicitations, and planned giving. Strong organizational abilities, excellent verbal and written communication skills, high professional and ethical standards, and a demonstrated ability to work collaboratively, are all requirements for this position. This position is full time and reports to the Executive Director.
