Vice President of Advancement

Act is searching for a proven, relationally-minded leader that would be the keeper of Act’s Advancement vision—to invite partners into a compelling experience and story. The Vice President of Advancement will be responsible for Act’s development and communication efforts and ensure alignment with Act’s overall vision and core beliefs. Ultimately, the Vice President of Advancement will equip the Advancement Team to execute sophisticated and innovative strategies and lead Act towards financial sustainability and a growing, dynamic brand presence.

The Vice President of Advancement must be able to successfully “lead leaders.” This requires an individual with a tried and tested philosophy on leadership, as well as an innate ability to identify and develop the unique gifts, skills, and passions of others and to coach them towards growth and success.

The Vice President of Advancement should also possess strategic abilities and experience, including the ability to design strategic vision and the ability to leverage data and other resources to identify opportunities, challenges and vulnerabilities that implicate departmental goals.

The Vice President of Advancement will grow into an important external face of Act and must be a compelling communicator and have demonstrated high-touch relationship building experience.

The Vice President of Advancement is ultimately responsible for ensuring that Act’s work is shared in a compelling way that honors the dignity and story of all involved and invites partners into a deeper understanding of justice, equity and their collaborative role in the transformation of a community. This requires that the Vice President of Advancement has a strong theological framework, a heart towards racial justice and a humble desire to engage financial partners in a way that is restorative and equitable.

The ideal candidate will possess a growing relationship with Jesus Christ, a passion for social justice and racial equity, a teachable spirit, and a desire to collaborate with a diverse team and partners.
