Executive Director – Ontario Back to Jobs

“Behold, I make all things new.”- Revelation 21:5

Three provincial organizations have come together to form a new cohesive association. Ontario Alliance of Christian Schools, Ontario Christian School Administrators Association, and Edifide will become a new single organization that will lead, enhance, serve and support Christian education in Eastern Canada.

We are searching for an Executive Director to steer the new organization through this next chapter and beyond with vision and faithfulness.

Your life’s work has been fueled by the conviction and evidence that Christian education equips young people to be engaged, faithful, fruitful citizens in God’s Kingdom and the world.

You want to use your expertise and leadership to serve the community of Christian educators and administrators in a way that advances that purpose on a large scale.

Your opportunity is here and now.

Executive Director

Your primary goal in this role is to lead this new association. As we come together, you will help the stakeholders transition from their silos into a big tent community. Once the transition has reached a tipping point, your leadership will become more focused on furthering our mission.

You will be well-served by your years of organizational leadership, seasoned financial acumen, and experience in Christian education.

The specific outcomes you pursue will be largely determined by you. We expect that you will already have the beginnings of a plan for leading an organization of teachers, principals and boards. This is an opportunity to implement that plan, and craft your role according to your vision, gifts and expertise.

For this role, your soft skills are as important as your experience. You will fit this role if you are:

  • Believable – you are earnestly aligned with our mission and have built a reputation for impeccable follow-through. Your word counts for a great deal.
  • Humble – you seek out the opinions of others and believe that the best work is collaborative. You know that going far requires going with others, so you rely on delegation and empowerment.
  • Courageous – you see the challenge here with eyes wide open. You’re a visionary, a forward thinker, a ‘what’s’ next kind of person. Your sense of calling inspires you to take on big efforts with bold optimism.
  • An exceptional communicator – you listen well, convey ideas and strategies with clarity, and adjust your style to suit your audience.

The character of any Executive Director sets a distinct tone for their organization. You will model clarity, transparency, trustworthiness, and respect.
