Director of Ministry Development – The Great Commission Foundation

This executive search is conducted by Nelson/Kraft & Associates on behalf of the Great Commission Foundation



The Great Commission Foundation is looking for a highly capable relational networker and prospector to join their team as Director of Ministry Development.

The Director of Ministry Development understands and is passionate about ministry and is an ambassador representing our Canadian (The Great Commission Foundation) and US ministries (Friends of the Great Commission) to enable other ministries in their quest to fulfill the Great Commission of Jesus Christ. You can network with individuals, churches, and other Christian organizations to identify opportunities where we can serve other ministries with the various support offerings we provide. We believe that the fulfillment of the Great Commission is done best when various members of the Church unite with the various giftings we have been provided with to advance ministry. This belief accords with our organization’s objective of advancing the Christian faith, relieving poverty and furthering education.

If you are gifted in development and are seeking to use your gifts and skills to serve God in a life-giving ministry, we would love to hear from you!




As the Director of Ministry Development, you will identify and engage potential ministries to act as agents of our organization through networking. You will work closely with the President & CEO, the Executive Director of our US organization, and the Director of Ministry Solutions to promote the growth and advancement of the whole organization.

You believe in helping ministries thrive and are driven and motivated by that conviction. This results in active prospecting, networking, and problem-solving to identify how ministries can effectively serve. You are responsible for identifying opportunities where our organization can support new or existing ministries by being at the forefront of the ministry development cycle. You actively seek ways to identify emerging ministries or other opportunities where we can support ministries by connecting with churches and other Christian organizations. By doing so, you develop strong, trusted relationships that open doors and expand our ministry’s reach. You also identify and participate in mission-type conferences to engage with new and current ministries that may serve as agents of our organization.




Our ministry consists of a team of skilled professionals that possess pastoral, administrative, and accounting skills and use these talents to serve other ministries in an effort to fulfill the Great Commission of Jesus Christ. The Great Commission Foundation is registered with the Canada Revenue Agency to do charitable work.

Our organization works exclusively with Christians and Christian ministries who serve our organization as agents by fulfilling frontline ministry work. As agents for our organization, they engage in outreach activities and provide onsite personnel either on the mission field or in the area where they are ministering, while our organization provides behind-the-scenes support. By doing so, we serve our agents, who are in turn able to focus on their God given mandate. Our behind-the-scenes support includes administrative, accounting, compliance, and donations management expertise.
