CHICAGO, IL (October 20, 2016) – Applications are now being accepted for the position of director of missionary personnel for the Serve Globally mission priority.
The position is similar to the one held by current co-directors Margie and Baxter Swenson, who are retiring after serving in this role for the past eight years. They have served the Covenant for nearly 41 years.
“The ECC owes a debt of gratitude to Margie and Baxter for laying a solid foundation of training, managing, and caring for ECC missionaries, and the person who will follow them will build on this,” said Al Tizon, Serve Globally executive minister.
“This position will be proactive in sharing the vision of God’s mission in our churches and conferences and identifying people who feel called to serve globally,” Tizon said.
The director of missionary personnel facilitates the engagement of Covenant missionaries throughout the globe. The position oversees the recruitment and screening, pastoral care and safety, and employment relations of missionaries.
