General Secretary - World Communion of Reformed Churches

The World Communion of Reformed Churches is seeking a committed, compassionate, and visionary leader to become its next General Secretary.

The WCRC is comprised of 100 million Christians from more than 230 churches in 108 countries. It is a participatory, global koinonia marked by discerning, confessing, witnessing, and being reformed together. Its goal is to be a part of God’s mission to transform the world so that all may have life (John 10:10).

Called to communion and committed to justice, the WCRC takes up the prophetic tradition of public witness, confessing the God of life by working through the following areas:

  1. cultivating a just communion
  2. covenanting for justice
  3. doing theology for transformation
  4. engaging God’s mission in contexts of crisis
  5. working with all the partners God provides

Serving as the WCRC General Secretary is an opportunity to lead, to serve, to share, to inspire, and to connect members and ecumenical partners responding to God’s mission.

The WCRC seeks a General Secretary who is called to bring her/his talents of communication, community-building, discernment, fundraising, leadership, listening, and organization to work with a dynamic staff in Hannover (Germany), regional leaders, and hundreds of dedicated volunteers around the world.

As the chief executive officer of the WCRC, the General Secretary’s role will be to strengthen the common witness of member churches and make a contribution to the ecumenical movement.

Candidates must be members in good standing of a WCRC member church, be fluent in English, and have theological training, including an advanced degree. Previous management experience, pastoral and cultural sensitivity, and the ability to provide spiritual leadership are essential.

Applications are due by 15 January 2022 to gs-search@wcrc.eu
