Mission Developer

Evergreen Presbyterian Church, Memphis, TN, is seeking a mission developer. The Mission Developer will work in partnership with the pastor and lay leaders to help “give feet” to our mission. Some might read this position as the person who helps us “do mission” (aka service) in the city. Others might read it as the person on staff who is responsible for developing our mission/vision. Neither is accurate. Instead, our Mission Developer will work alongside the entire community to help find concrete ways to fulfill and practice our mission in the world.

The Mission Developer’s responsibilities are two-fold: Community Development and Communications, understanding that the two are related. When weighing one set of skills & responsibilities against the other we will give a priority to those who have experience in building relational power and a demonstrated ability to gather people in sustained communities. More information about the congregation can be found here.

To Apply: Email your resume, cover letter, a writing sample, and three references to: missiondeveloper@evergreenmemphis.org.
