A letter from the Moderator of the Business Administrator Search Committee of the Presbytery of Philadelphia:
On August 1st, the Presbytery of Philadelphia Business Administrator Search Committee met for the first time. We have big shoes to fill as Larry Davis’ faithful tenure draws to a close at year’s end, yet given the gifted elders and ministers with whom I have privileged to serve, I am confident we are up to the task. Thus as we begin this effort on your behalf, I need your help.
As part of our meeting, we reviewed the job description (found below) and talked about the key skills needed in this role. We are looking for a person with 5-7 years of relevant work experience in risk management and property issues, finance and budget, an individual who has proved adept in funds development and supervising a team, and someone with a love for the church who possess the people skills needed in cross-cultural settings.
If you can think of a candidate who you believe would be a good fit, please encourage her or him to send a resume’ and cover letter to [email protected] or by mail to the Presbytery office. The deadline for applications is September 15, 2017. In addition, I ask for your prayers as we undertake and move through this search.
Along the way, I will provide you with updates of our efforts. In the meanwhile and beyond, know of our gratitude for your trust in us and our eagerness to find the person God has already prepared.
Moderator, Business Administrator Search Committee
