director of missions
Central Presbyterian Church is sharing the good news of Jesus Christ around the world and down the block. As part of that exciting work, we support, encourage, and equip scores of missionaries all across the globe as they labor in their local context to spread the gospel. In order to build on this strong foundation of Missions ministry, we are actively seeking an energetic and collaborative leader to serve as our next Director of Missions.
As the Director of Missions at Central, you will work closely with a strong and passionate team of lay volunteers to inspire and mobilize our congregation to actively engage in this important aspect of our church-wide vision and mission. You will be part of a staff team working together to integrate our core values (connect, grow, and serve) across all facets of our ministries and in alignment with our annual ministry plan.
Missions at Central has a strong foundation that has been developed over many decades, and the new Director will seek to build on that foundation. The ideal candidate will have a genuine and magnetic relationship with Jesus Christ that naturally inspires and attracts people to engage. They will be a highly organized leader with the ability to build intentional systems and networks that further connect Central members with the sacrificial missions of our church. The ability to network and connect with members of varied ages and demographics will be especially important. The new director will understand how to recruit, train, and cultivate volunteer teams.
We are seeking interest from candidates with a minimum of 5 years of experience in some form of Missions ministry. A bachelor's degree is required. Both ordained and non-ordained applicants are encouraged to apply.

Central Presbyterian's early childhood education program, PEEPs, is presently seeking substitutes and teachers to join our staff family - a group of women praying for one another, celebrating together, and serving the Lord alongside each other. From 8:20-2:15 on M, W, and F, we train kids to love God and each other. Embedded in recess and the alphabet are stories of God’s love and provision. PEEPs is much more than a preschool, it is a safe place for kids and staff alike to experience the great love of Christ. PEEPs teachers' children attend PEEPs for free and receive a discount at CCS. Please contact Christine Vandervoort with any questions or click here to apply. To learn more about PEEPs, please visit our web page.
We are currently in need of:
- Full time (M, W, F 8:15 - 2:15) teachers and substitutes for our summer and school year programs.
