The World Communion of Reformed Churches is starting the process to choose its next General Secretary after Rev. Dr. Chris Ferguson completes his term of service in August 2021.
“As a global koinonia, we seek to discern, confess, witness, and be reformed with and through the life of the whole Communion as together we work to transform the world,” said President Najla Kassab. “We are dedicated to live in hope and move forward despite all challenges; to find the right candidate to lead us in our work as we are called to communion and committed to justice.”
The General Secretary is “the chief Executive Officer of the World Communion of Reformed Churches and shall be responsible to the General Council and to the Executive Committee to direct and to coordinate the work of the World Communion” (Constitution, Article XII).
The General Secretary has overall responsibility for the activities of the Communion’s secretariat; represents the Communion and its concerns in a collegial and pastoral way; maintains a regular presence in the life of the member churches; and, in close collaboration with the president, officers and members of the Executive Committee, is responsible for carrying out the mandates of the General Council.
A full job posting for the general secretary position, along with qualifications and application requirements can be found on the WCRC website: www.wcrc.ch/search
The deadline to apply for consideration is 30 November 2020.
