Chief Financial Officer – CCMBC Legacy Fund
This executive search is conducted by Nelson/Kraft & Associates on behalf of CCMBC Legacy Fund.
Are you a Chief Financial Officer (CFO) who has experienced significant success in the marketplace and is now looking to use those skills and expertise for Kingdom significance? CCMBC Legacy Fund is seeking a CFO to enhance and provide financial oversight that positively impacts the ministry of the Canadian Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches.
Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer, the Chief Financial Officer will be responsible for providing financial management and operational, consultative support for the following legal entities: CCMBC Legacy Fund Inc. (Legacy), CCMBC Investments Ltd., and the Canadian Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches (CCMBC). As a member of the senior management team, the CFO will be involved in strategic planning, evaluation, and future development initiatives. In a collaborative leadership style, you will continue to build and manage effective and streamlined financial systems, including accounting, legal, and information technology. The CFO will define the process and implement the infrastructure/systems needed to support substantial growth over the next five to ten years.
From the head office in Winnipeg, Manitoba, you will be responsible for the oversight of a multimillion-dollar portfolio of assets that will have a positive impact for the Lord’s work across Canada. We would be pleased to enter a confidential discussion on how the Lord might use you in this new, challenging, and significant way.
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.
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.
