Controller – CCMBC Legacy Fund

This executive search is conducted by Nelson/Kraft & Associates on behalf of CCMBC Legacy Fund

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

CCMBC Legacy Fund is seeking a detail oriented and relational Controller to join their team at their head office in Winnipeg.

Reporting directly to the Chief Financial Officer, the Controller has the following primary responsibilities: leading and overseeing the activities of the Accounting department, handling financial reporting, budgeting, and internal controls, and spearheading automation projects of the Finance department and other process enhancement initiatives.

If you are a teamwork oriented and servant-hearted leader with a CPA designation and values that align with that of CCMBC Legacy Fund, we would love to connect with you.

 

OUR STORY

Forty years ago, the Canadian Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches (CCMBC) began providing mortgages to its churches, pastors, and other ministry capital projects through its Stewardship Ministries division. In 2019, a substantial reorganization was completed, with mortgage, investment, and administrative services provided by Legacy and its subsidiaries.

Legacy is a Canadian Registered Charity whose sole member is CCMBC, and we serve as a resource to our 230 churches, provincial conferences, and ministry partners. Legacy provides payroll and accounting services for many of our churches and conferences, which they value for saving them significant time and expense. We administer the group insurance program that ensures all conference employees and retirees have access to comprehensive and affordable health, dental, and insurance coverage. We administer CCMBC’s Pension Plan that helps participants prepare for retirement.

Investment and lending activities are provided through Legacy’s subsidiary CCMBC Investments Ltd. By investing in promissory notes, our investors provide the capital necessary for us to extend secured mortgages to our churches, pastors, schools, and camps, enabling them to have a presence in the communities they serve.

Income generated by Legacy is directed to CCMBC ministries that help grow God’s Kingdom through church planting, pastor leadership training, and other church-led ministry efforts.

OUR MISSION

We exist to provide ministry-focused financial services to facilitate Kingdom growth.

 

OUR VALUES

  • We operate in dependence on God
  • We serve our ministry partners
  • We steward resources on God’s behalf
  • We provide high-quality, professional service
  • We value the wellbeing of our employees

 

OUR VISION

One very important step in our faith walk is to grow God’s Kingdom. As disciples of Jesus, we are called to be good stewards of the resources God has provided for us. As part of the original charter of the Canadian Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches, the conference envisioned the pooling of resources to create a fund for supporting mortgages for churches, pastors, and other capital projects for ministry. There are times when churches and pastors do not qualify for a mortgage with a bank, especially newer church plants. It is for these situations that the MB Stewardship Ministries program was created and continues through Legacy. Over the past 40 years, the Lord has blessed our people with the resources and heart to fund Kingdom growth. Today, many of our pastors’ own homes and many churches have buildings thanks to the generosity of our constituents.

With the success and growth of the fund, and with increased regulations governing the financial world, a decision was approved by our churches in 2015 to create an independent organization to manage MB Stewardship Ministries. This step was necessary to ensure sustainability of a stable funding platform that will continue to fund ministry while providing our investors with a competitive rate of return. Governance of CCMBC Legacy Fund and CCMBC Investments is overseen by a board of directors comprised of a majority of CCMBC executive board members.

As we discern the expansion of our operations, we continue to pray, and ask God to provide the clear vision and wisdom required to make appropriate decisions now and in the years to come.
