The Christian Reformed Church in North America’s Canada Ministry Board is searching for a candidate to fill the full-time, permanent position of Executive Director-Canada. 

The CRCNA is a diverse family of over a thousand congregations and ministries across North America dedicated to bringing the good news of God’s kingdom while transforming lives and communities worldwide. In Canada, there are 241 organized and emerging congregations, as well as several shared ministries and staff. 

Reporting to the Canadian Ministry Board, the Executive Director Canada will be responsible for communicating a clear and compelling vision that inspires ministry leaders and partners to advance the binational mission of the CRCNA in Canada. This person will embrace the responsibility of overseeing staff and others within the CRCNA Canadian Ministry Office as they lean into this vision each day. 

The Executive Director should demonstrate a strong, vibrant, Christian faith marked by spiritual humility and moral integrity. They will be a skilled diplomat, with previous board governance experience, and a firm and confident leader with a passion to build meaningful relationships with Canadian and binational staff, pastors, classes and congregations. They are to provide strong leadership as well as pastoral support and encouragement to staff and ministry leaders across Canada.

This position will replace what was formerly known as the Canadian Ministries Director position and most recently as the Transitional Executive Director. At the time of the Transitional Executive Director appointment, a hiring protocol was put in place to have a formal search process at the end of the two-year term. This is that search.

We are looking for a seasoned leader for the Canadian church. The successful applicant must be willing to travel.

Located in the heart of beautiful Burlington, Ontario, the denominational office in Canada boasts 79 passionate staff dedicated to serving the various ministries and programs of the church. This position would be expected to work from the Burlington office at least part-time. 

The Executive Director Search Team invites interested applicants to review the job description and other information on this website, then forward a letter of interest and a resume to search team chair Jim Joosse at [email protected] prior to January 26, 2024.
