Job Opening – Director of Annual Giving
Location: Oklahoma City, OK
December 18, 2017
Reaching Souls seeks an individual to lead our Annual Giving campaign and work with some of the best people on the planet. This position gets to interact daily with generous givers, volunteers, and a talented staff. At Reaching Souls, Annual Giving is our year-round effort to raise renewable funds from individuals and groups to support Reaching Souls’ general operating purposes and special needs. And what we mean by “general operating purposes” is our all-out effort to reach people for Christ.
This position manages all aspects of Annual Giving including goal setting, planning, budgeting, and implements strategies to accomplish the Annual Giving goals.
At Reaching Souls, our sole focus is a soul focus. Our mission is in our name – Reaching Souls. Our core driving force, the reason we exist as an organization, is to reach souls for Christ. Our strategic purpose is to reach the maximum number of people for Christ in the least amount of time in the most efficient way. There are many great things we can do to help people around the world, but the most important thing, priority #1, is to introduce them to Jesus Christ.
If you’re already tired of reading about souls, this isn’t the place for you. If you agree with keeping the main thing the main thing, you might be a fit at RS. We believe Nationals Reaching Nationals is the most effective way to reach the millions waiting to hear the Good News. Reaching Souls supports national evangelists who serve as missionaries to their own people. As you read this, 2,000 National Missionaries are reaching their own people for Christ in the mission field…and the mission field is right where each evangelist lives.
Presently we are in Cuba and 10 African countries. These evangelists know where to preach because they are preaching to their neighbors. There are no such things as language barriers or cultural miscues. Follow up with new Christians is simple and discipleship is natural, because those being saved are in their own community. Through reaching their own people, 2,000 National Missionaries will see 11 million people come to Christ and start almost 5,000 churches this year. At a cost of only 37¢ per salvation decision, this strategy makes lots of sense at a cost of just a few cents!
Our definition of missions isn’t just “doing good on foreign land”. We are results-oriented and believe you move the Great Commission ball forward by making disciples and planting new churches. Our work environment is fun and fast-paced…but razor focused.
The Director of Annual Giving creates opportunities for God’s people to be involved in God’s work.
We’re looking for someone who has an extra dose of initiative, persistence, and courage. Do people like you? We’re looking for the kind of person that everyone is always glad to see coming or calling. We need someone who is an excellent communicator, organizer, and thinker. Can you think creatively and analytically at the same time?
Ultimately this position builds bridges between our donors’ ambitions and dreams and opportunities made available through Reaching Souls. You need to be a good story teller because you’ll be sharing the story of what God is doing through Reaching Souls…again and again.
Come join a work environment that is refreshing, exciting, challenging, and eternally focused.
