ABOUT YOU

You are an overachiever. You’re extremely detail-oriented and possess strong prioritization, time-management, and organizational skills. You thrive in a systems-oriented environment and have the ability to adjust the system when needed.  You have an excellent understanding of the sales process.  Maybe you even have previous sales experience or a business-related degree.  You have superb interpersonal skills and people like you.  But that doesn’t get to your head. You’re humble and continually seek to improve yourself and the organization you represent.  You possess exceptional written and verbal communication skills.  You play well with other team members.  At the same time, you’re highly self-motivated and thrive doing most of your work alone, behind the scenes.  At the end of the day, you do what it takes to get things done.  Most importantly, you know this isn’t just a way to pay the bills.  It’s a chance to do something meaningful. A chance to serve others.  And a chance to make a life-changing impact on students with the Gospel.

This is a full-time, salaried employment opportunity. Flexible schedule but most of the role will be carried out during daytime business hours.

The primary objectives of your position are to (1) help achieve the mission of SFT by booking high quality school assembly opportunities for SFT speakers and musicians/bands (that would lead to ministry opportunities), and (2) establish, develop, and maintain super awesome customer relationships. In other words, you are in charge of booking Step 1 in our 3-Step Process (below) to achieve our mission.

 

Based on your strengths, here are some of the day-to-day responsibilities you’ll be trusted with:

  • Fielding all inbound leads generated by SFT marketing efforts

WHO IS STAND FOR TRUTH?

Stand For Truth is a non-profit, 501c3 Christian ministry that exists for one purpose, and one purpose only -  to take the Gospel to students in America's public schools. We accomplish our mission by teaming up with speakers and bands/musicians through a simple, 3-step, event-based approach:

  1. School Assembly- we schedule a daytime, character-based school assembly in a public high school and/or middle school.

  2. Evening Concert- we invite students to an evening concert at the school where they hear the Gospel.

  3. Student Impact- students connect with local churches and leave the concert with gospel-centered resources.
