Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) headquarters has recently retained our executive search firm to assist in locating a Senior Director of Communications for the Presbyterian Mission Agency (PMA).


Witnessing to the world as far back as 1837, Missions of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) have shared the good news of Jesus Christ to the world. Engaged in extensive missions work, it has developed five distinct programs seeking to alleviate hunger, foster self-development, respond to disasters, support mission works, preach the gospel, heal the sick, and educate new generations for the future. In partnership with more than 150 churches and Christian organizations around the world, the missionary efforts of the PMA involve approximately 1,000 volunteers and compensated personnel. Its membership consists of nearly 2 million individuals, 10,000 congregations, and 20,000 ordained ministers in all 50 states.


Reporting to the Executive Director, and serving as a member of the Executive Leadership Cabinet, the Senior Director plays an organization-wide strategic and leadership role. This individual will be responsible for a team of 24 communications specialists and will oversee PMA communications strategies, plans, messages, and materials communicated through a variety of media. The purpose is to deliver a constructive, positive, and compelling message to the organization’s two million members and empower constituency support.


We seek a strategic leader with 10+ years’ experience in a senior communications management role, either in-house or with a communications or marketing agency.

The selected individual will be a strong, spiritual, executive leader who shares the passion and conviction of ministry.


Compensation is comparable to other nonprofits and includes a superior benefits package. This is an outstanding career ministry opportunity as a servant leader supporting the Presbyterian congregation and its missions on a worldwide stage with the best in contemporary practices.
