Job Type: Full-Time

Job Description:

In Southern California, there aren’t many opportunities for experienced, high caliber professionals to work in a large, distinguished ministry.  The Orange County Rescue Mission has been serving the Least, the Last, and the Lost in our community for over 50 years.  Our $22 million budget is funded solely by private donations, which enables us to provide meaningful, Christ-centered service to those in need, unencumbered by government regulation or restrictions.  Employment at the Orange County Rescue Mission is a unique opportunity to make a profound impact in your community, while fulfilling your calling to serve Jesus Christ. 


The Rescue Mission is seeking an experienced, dynamic and collaborative leader to join its management team as the Controller.  The Controller will lead all day-to-day finance operations and supervise a team of 4-5 staff members including functional responsibility over accounting, accounts payable, accounts receivable and grants administration. The Controller will ensure the continued financial success of the five separate entities (Orange County Rescue Mission, Inc. (OCRM), Hurtt Family Health Clinic, Inc. (HURTT), Inland Empire Rescue Mission, Inc. (IERM) and Hope Family Housing, Inc) and their programs, while keeping the systems and procedures in place to support effective program implementation and conduct flawless audits. The Controller will work closely with program leaders and their staffs, not only to educate them regarding finance and accounting procedures but also to explore how the finance function can support program operations.


In addition, this person will partner with the CFO, senior leadership, and the human resources (HR) and information technology (IT) staff to enhance and better integrate finance, HR, and IT functions.


The qualified candidate for this position must have proven successful nonprofit management experience overseeing the finances of complex organizations with multiple programs and funding sources, both government and private. He/she will bring a mix of energy, flexibility, vision, sense of urgency, willingness to make tough decisions, and the ability to relate and minister to all levels within the organization. This position will play a significant role in shaping the Rescue Mission’s future.


The Controller reports to the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and will be responsible for oversight of all finance, accounting and reporting activities. As the number-two executive to the CFO, the Controller will be involved in supporting presentations to the board finance and audit committee and will work closely with the senior leadership team.
