Business Development Lead – Ontario – The Great Commission Foundation

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



The Great Commission Foundation (GCF) is looking for a collaborative and relational networker to join their team as Business Development Lead - Ontario.

The Business Development Lead - Ontario loves ministry and is GCF’s ambassador to Eastern Canada. You work to connect with individuals, projects, charities and non-profits to build relationships and share the benefits of working with the GCF to help fulfill the Great Commission of Jesus Christ. GCF believes that the fulfillment of the Great Commission is done better together so you will be tasked with facilitating and promoting a message and culture of working with other charities, non-profits, individuals and projects with the same core goals: the relief of poverty, the furtherance of education and the advancement of the Christian faith.

If you are a self-starter and team player gifted in business development, and are passionate about making new connections to further God’s call on our lives, we would love to hear from you!



As the Business Development Lead - Ontario, you will find, engage and identify potential agents for GCF through networking. You will work closely with the Applications Department Lead, who brings on new agents to work together to fulfill the Great Commission. You will collaborate and compliment the work of the Friends of the Great Commission (FGC) Business Development Lead to promote the growth and advancement of both organizations.

You believe GCF can help ministries thrive and are driven and motivated by that passion, resulting in active prospecting, networking and problem-solving. You are responsible for leading and running the business development cycle. You interact with ministry and key opinion leaders, gain referrals from them and form strong, trusted relationships that open doors and expand GCF’s reach and support. You also identify and participate in mission-type conferences to engage with new and current agents. In due course, you will be instrumental in supporting the President in establishing and starting up an Eastern Canada office.



  • A passion for and genuine interest in serving and advancing ministry and charities.
  • 7+ years’ experience in sales, customer service or vendor management.
  • A minimum of 3 years’ direct sales and development experience.

  • Demonstrated experience in business development with measurable results.
  • Experience in business process and/or business optimization; ideally having worked or been exposed to the administrative and accounting functions of an organization.
  • An understanding of the complexities and pain points of administrative and accounting functions in a charitable organization, preferred.
  • Ability to work well independently and act entrepreneurially while engaging with and reporting to the Head Office.
  • Prior experience establishing or running an office in a new territory is an asset.
  • Agreement with the Statement of Faith and Code of Conduct of GCF and aligned with the vision and mission of the organization.
