The Director of Development of Global Fellowship will lead our team to develop and implement strategic and productive marketing campaigns that will increase the relational and financial resources necessary to reach those who have not heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Global Fellowship is an excellent place to channel your passion for Jesus by championing indigenous church-planters and building a funding base for them to do the most effective work in spreading the Gospel.
What you’ll be doing:
As the Director of Development for Global Fellowship, you will oversee our marketing plans and external communication, manage donor relations and indigenous fundraising, develop church relationships and work with Grant Writers and Regional Leaders to develop winning grant proposals. Aside from overseeing the development and proper implementation of the marketing campaign and essential external relationship using blogs and other mediums, your duties also involve:
Leading the Development Department in ways consistent with Global Fellowship’s mission and values.
Increasing commitment from churches for indigenous fundraising and working closely with the Church Networker to build positive relationships that will encourage churches to support financially.

Building our brand strategy and collaborating with the Marketing Coordinator to develop cohesive marketing materials across all our departments.
Researching and identifying potential donors and implementing strategies to cultivate and steward positive relationships.
Ensuring excellent external communication by utilizing media platforms such as newsletters, podcasts, and blogs.
Managing the Event Coordinator, Plan Summits, Events and Fundraisers to secure a successful event.
Collaborating with the Mission Stream team to grow and support the MS missionaries and brand. This might happen on a “request only” basis from the President of MissionStream, but not as a part of a Global Fellowship “job” that reports to the E.D.’s

Managing grant proposal implementation and reporting.

You have a passion for reaching the unreached with the Gospel. You have a heart for indignous church planters to be well equipped with resources to make the greatest impact for the Kingdom.
