Regional Director of Development

As a strategic member of our leadership team, you will be expected to represent World Mission in your region of the United States. You will meet face to face, over the phone/Zoom, and in church auditoriums, sharing the exciting vision of taking the gospel where it has never been. Specifically, you will be a front-line major gift officer to engage new and existing donor activity, which is the lifeline of our work. Your priority will be individuals, companies, and churches that can make significant investments into World Mission. 

The Regional Director of Development will work with the Chief Development Officer (CDO) and others as appropriate to grow and broaden his/her development portfolio at World Mission.
