The North American Lutheran Church (NALC) and North American Lutheran Seminary (NALS) are seeking a seasoned and proven development director to lead and implement the development/fundraising strategies of the NALC and the NALS. Reporting to the Bishop, the Director of Development will oversee the fundraising program and its daily operations. This leader must understand and practice current trends in nonprofit faith-based fundraising, as well as have proven experience in creating and implementing revenue development and cultivation plans.
The ideal candidate is one who embodies the Core Values of the NALC and can support and articulate the purpose and identity of the church. Experience with fundraising trends in non-profit or faith-based organizations is a plus.
Additionally, it is desired that the candidate would be willing to travel and engage congregations and small groups. Above all, he or she will be comfortable in a leadership role that demands clear communication, teamwork, and decisiveness.
If you know anyone who has gifts and abilities in the field of development and an interest in the serving the church, please make them aware of this job posting. If you, a pastor, are interested but don’t have the background in development, we would still love to talk with you about this position.
