But I was always aware of those quiet servants in our HQ who processed our finances, tracked down insurance policies to cover our events or processed new missionary applications. Our work on campus - or in schools, churches and the community, couldn't happen without them.
Almost all of them raise financial support to serve in mission this way. We praise God for these servant-hearted missionaries. We need three important roles (salaried, 1 supported).
1. Experienced Finance Officer
2. Major Partners Manager
3. IT Manager
The Experience Finance Officer role is a hands-on support role, based at the National Office of Power to Change in Mulgrave, Melbourne. Working in conjunction with the Finance Accountant and CFO (Finance Team Leader), you will ensure the accuracy of all Staff, Missionary and Ministry pays, claims and accounts, and also ensure timely and accurate payments for Power to Change and its subsidiaries.
About the Major Partners Manager role:
In Australia we are extremely blessed to receive around $6.5M in donations from approx. 4000 partners giving regularly to over 150 missionaries who develop their own ministry partner teams. Another 11,000 people participate in field ministries in various ways. Amongst this there is a smaller but increasing number of major partners who give to national projects.
The aim of this role is to help develop these major partners into what we call L.I.F.E partners, which stands for Labour, Influence, Finance and Expertise.
The Major Partners Manager will primarily invest one-to-one in our L.I.F.E partners to grow and connect them with opportunities to be involved in mission. They will use their organisational and networking skills to strategically develop, manage and execute a major partner engagement plan. They will build significant, lasting and meaningful relationships with the broad range of people that make up our donor base.
The Major Partners Manager will report to our Director of L.I.F.E Engagement, and work closely with our National L.I.F.E. Team to influence fundraising, marketing and communication plans. There is opportunity for development, advancement and succession in this role in coming years.
It will include help desk roles, IT security for our HQ as well as our team members, managing our IT needs at our Melbourne HQ. A complete job description will be available soon.
