Job Description:
Mission India is in our third straight year of double-digit growth in income, in ministry results, and significant growth in ministry locations in India. This growth could continue into the foreseeable future. The growth that has resulted from the success of our Development Department under the leadership of Vice President of USA Ministries, has brought us more fundraising opportunities than we can handle with our current staff and organizational structure.

The Vice President of Development will answer to the President and lead the team that is responsible for all communication and fundraising activities in USA.

He or she will be encouraged to initiate new and creative ways to communicate Mission India's message with North American believers.

We are seeking a VP of Development with the following qualifications:

- A passion for the Bible and the Great Commission.

- Must have demonstrated success building and leading a team in a related or similar area.
