Major Gifts Officer – Pacific Northwest

You love meeting new people; they bring you energy. You think strategically before you act. You love the Lord and want to bring the fullness of the Gospel to people ready for the good news. You have sales or professional fundraising skills and long to put them to work for the great commission. While your humility keeps you from quickly declaring it, the fact is people find you magnetic.  The ideal candidate has the makings of a world-class relational fundraiser and is a self-starter with a high level of energy, self-confidence, and a positive “can-do” attitude, mixed with humility. This person is an individual of unquestionable integrity whose professional and personal conduct reflects our values. In his/her experience in major gifts fundraising or in strategic selling, he/she has developed gifts as a socialite, a strategist. If this describes you, we encourage you to apply as a candidate for this opportunity.
