CCMBC National Director Opportunity Profile
The Canadian Conference of MB Churches (CCMBC) is the national Conference for MB Churches in Canada. CCMBC exists to resource its churches through partnerships with six provincial conferences in Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia. This Canadian Conference has also established national agencies whose joint mission is to provide services to Canadian MB Churches. The national agencies are MB Seminary, Legacy, and Multiply. Furthermore, CCMBC offers services and resources through its internal departments, such as the Centre for MB Studies and Kindred Productions.
CCMBC seeks its next National Director to help our family of 230+ churches move closer to our shared mission/vision: “to cultivate a community and culture of healthy disciple-making churches, faithfully joining Jesus in his mission.” This mission/vision is to be accomplished through collaboration and shared participation in our Collaborative Unified Strategic Plan (CUSP), which desires “healthy disciple-making churches” that are:
- Growing in spiritual and theological health
- Developing excellent leaders
- Pursuing local and global mission together
- Becoming more organizationally healthy.

- Be (or willing to become at the time of hiring) a credentialed MB leader and an active member in a local MB church in good standing with its provincial MB conference.
This type of management role necessarily requires a highly relational, team-oriented, results-focused servant leader with a commitment to and skills that fit this collaborative leadership model.
Role Priorities of the National Director:
- Promote CCMBC’s mission/vision “to cultivate a community and culture of healthy disciple-making churches and ministries, faithfully joining Jesus in his mission.”
- Serve the purposes and goals of CCMBC as articulated by the Executive Board and affirmed by the National Assembly

- Work collaboratively with the National Faith & Life Director and the CCMBC Legacy Fund Inc. Chief Executive Officer.
