The historic Anglican mission agency CMS (Church Mission Society) is re-advertising for an Executive Leader after not appointing first time around.
The search process for a new person to lead the mission agency began late last year following the appointment of the organisation’s Community Leader Revd Canon Tim Dakin to the bishopric of Winchester.
Previously Martyn Snow, Vice-chair Trustees and Chair of Appointment Panel shared the following prayer with CMS supporters:
“God of grace,
we thank you for CMS
and for all your faithful servants
whom you have called as leaders of this community.
Send your Holy Spirit
to guide and direct all who have responsibility
for the choice of a new leader.
Grant them discernment, vision and unity
and keep us all faithful in prayer;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
The agency, founded in 1799, now has more than 2500 members and over 200 global mission partners. It is seeking "a spiritually mature, committed Christian, passionate about mission and prayer, who can be a compelling role model for the ideals, ethos and values of CMS, working primarily within the Anglican Communion." They must be a "clear communicator of vision, inspiring faith and hope in others, a team player with proven leadership skills, able to lead, motivate and manage staff, partners and members, confident in relating to people at all levels."
CMS is also looking for someone with experience of cross-cultural working, collaboration and partnership and a strong track record of leading change in an influential, complex organisation
