FROM THE YOUTH FOR CHRIST BOARD SEARCH COMMITTEE
Thank you for continuing to pray for the YFCI Board and Search Committee as we look to God and depend on His leading in the selection of the next President and CEO for the global YFC movement.
Further to previous communications, kindly note that the Board has been actively discussing the matter, including recommendations from the YFCI World Leadership Team (WLT). We can report that a number of new and previously nominated individuals remain interested in the role and as such, a decision was taken by the Board to re-advertise the position so that there is a formal and transparent re-opening of the application process, which will enable all interested parties to submit or reaffirm their expressions of interest in writing.
We also underscore the fact that YFCI needs to recruit a spiritual leader who is visionary, credible, sensitive to God’s voice and able to keep the movement true to its mission. Someone who is stable and experienced, who is able to develop strategies in keeping with the vision and mission of YFC; who can also communicate well and unite the movement around clear goals and objectives for evangelising and discipling the lost youth of this generation.
In this regard, please now receive the attached updated Job Posting, which we would like to be circulated widely to enable all suitably qualified and called individuals to send in their applications. The Job Posting will be open for approximately three weeks, beginning Tuesday, 1 August, 2017 and closing on Monday, 21 August, 2017.
Experienced candidates who have served, or are serving within YFC, are encouraged to apply for the post. We also sense that we should be open to look broadly at the available pool of applicants and wait, as we seek God’s peace in making this decision. Note, in selecting and anointing King David, the prophet Samuel said, “Send for him; we will not sit down until he arrives.” (1 Samuel 16:11). This was purposeful waiting for, and on, God’s choice.
Please continue to pray with us, encourage qualified individuals to prayerfully consider the Job Posting.
Thank you for your prayers.
Yours in Christ,
Chair of the Search Committee
Youth for Christ International Board
