Knox Presbyterian Church is looking for an experienced, servant-hearted leader to join their team as Director of Finance. The Director of Finance is responsible for Knox’s finance and accounting functions, and for supervising the Finance Manager. This includes support of the governance bodies and ministries of the church, and support of other areas such as property management, site renewal and IT. The Director of Finance will be a key member of the team working towards the ongoing renewal of Knox’s site and facilities, will lead the upgrade of their accounting system and the development of their next 3 – 5 year financial framework, and will support new and ongoing ministry initiatives from a budget and finance perspective. If you have a strong focus and work ethic, are passionate about using your God-given skills in the areas of accounting and finance to advance God’s Kingdom, and would like to explore your sense of calling to this role with Knox, we would love to hear from you.
Knox Church is an urban, evangelical and Reformed community with an emphasis on expository preaching, local and global missions, and intercessory prayer. Located conveniently next to the University of Toronto’s downtown campus, Knox has a vision of “Following Jesus, Loving the City, Serving the World.” The congregation is multicultural and multiethnic – drawing from across the Greater Toronto Area – and is a member of the Presbyterian Church in Canada.
Worship at Knox is rooted in the Reformed tradition while finding contemporary expressions, both musically and liturgically, fitting our unique context. We seek to engage and express the broad range of cultures, languages, generations and traditions represented in our congregation and local area. This deepens our discipleship and enlivens our witness, connecting us to the global and historic church, and testifying to the expansive, barrier-breaking family of God described in Scripture.
Following Jesus: Following Jesus. It’s as simple as that. Knox’s desire is to follow Jesus, as he is revealed to us in Scripture, in God’s story of his love for broken humanity.
Loving the City: We follow Jesus by obeying his commands. He calls us to love our neighbour, and for Knox that means the city of Toronto.
Serving the World: We believe God is at work in the world. His heart is for all people to know him and for his world to be transformed by his love. We believe Knox is a part of this work.
