The Controller will lead the overall financial functions for the Mission (80%) and also be responsible for various compliance and regulatory requirements (20%). The Controller will be responsible for supervising and preparing all aspects of the financial statements including monthly close, financial statement preparation, payroll, annual audit and tax return submission. Compliance responsibilities include regulatory filings that are to be made on a timely basis (tax returns, state donor solicitation and financial filings) and working with human resources to ensure that all appropriate reporting is performed.
On a broader level, the Controller (reporting directly to the CFO) will contribute as a senior leader in the organization and may, in time, have the opportunity to take on additional leadership responsibilities.

Full agreement with the Mission’s Statement of Faith
CPA with a relevant Bachelor’s degree
At least 7 years progressive experience in accounting and/or finance

Proven financial close experience
History of working in a team environment and across disciplines
The new Controller is well-educated, professional, and internally motivated, but that’s only the beginning. If this is you, you have a drive for excellence in every area of your life ... a drive that is deeply connected to meaning and mission. “Spread the gospel, feed the hungry and shelter the homeless” is a purpose that resonates with you
As one who is created in the image of God, you value those around you. You recognize that process is just as important as the outcome and that people matter. You have a desire to serve others and to be part of an organization where authentic servant leadership is the modus operandi, where people roll up their sleeves and do whatever is needed.
You have a yearning to change things for the better, to take what’s good and make it great. The idea of building a world-class organization is something you can get up for every day, and the freedom to do it with creativity and excellence is not something you want to miss. You’re energized by the opportunity to support expansion and the challenge of implementing new systems. You’d rather develop tools that enable than bureaucratic policies that stifle.
Of course, not every day is ideal. It helps to be “thick-skinned” and for resilience to be a well developed norm. You recognize this is part of being in a growing organization and you’re happy to take on those challenges. You find yourself grateful each day to be part of a high-functioning senior leadership team and surrounded by colleagues who support and pray for each other. You realize that this is the job that finally connects excellence with purpose.'
