About The Job: You will be in relationship with 100+ congregations that share God's love through Lutheran World Relief (LWR) and want to partner with us in our mission to end poverty, injustice and human suffering. You will make meaningful connections with congregational leaders and develop and grow gifts that will make a significant difference in the world. Some days will include connecting with pastors over the phone or by email. Other days will include travelling to churches across the United States to deepen engagement with LWR. You will preach and speak in congregations about the lifesaving difference that their generosity can make when they share their love with our neighbors through LWR. You will contribute to the development of exciting new congregational engagement strategies and guide the team as we implement them. In a world of plenty, those with the very least are the most forsaken. In this role, you will inspire others to put faith in action and be a critical part of helping us solve this global problem.

About The Ideal Candidate: You are passionate about loving your neighbor and inspiring others to share their generosity with a world in need. You have experience with Lutheran audiences, understand congregational systems, and have a strong background in Lutheran theology.

You are a strategic thinker, skilled at putting big ideas into action and manage details exceptionally well. You believe in the core values of Corus International and Lutheran World Relief, and would thrive working side-by-side with others who share these values. You are a team player, creative problem solver and long for daily work that will make a real difference in the world. If you are this person, we would love to meet you!

Requirements: This role requires a minimum of a four-year college degree. At least seven years of experience with increasing responsibilities in relationship management is required, including experience working with congregations or individuals with significant philanthropic capacity.
