Nancy Sollenberger Heishman announces the Lilly Endowment grant to the Mission and Ministry Board.

The Office of Ministry is seeking a part-time program manager for the Lilly Endowment, Inc.-funded program “Part-Time Pastor; Full-Time Church.” The program manager will work with an advisory committee to implement this new program initiative that addresses the practical needs of multivocational ministers in the Church of the Brethren.

The program will include recruiting and training qualified individuals to serve as “Circuit Riders”—those who assess ministers’ immediate concerns—as well as Exemplars—those who provide expertise regarding concerns identified as most common for multivocational clergy. The program manager will also manage requests for services, schedule service providers (Circuit Riders and Exemplars), and meet ongoing administrative needs including completion of required reports to the grant provider.

Further details regarding the grant, as well as a detailed position description, are available online or by request. Interested persons may apply for this position by sending a cover letter, resumé, and two letters of recommendation to COBApply@brethren.org. The position is available Jan. 1. Location is flexible, with travel as needed.
