Canadian Operations Director
Job type: Part-time
Location: Guelph, ON, Post Date: August 07, 2017
Organizational Overview: Carey Outreach Ministries offers seminary level theological education to pastors and spiritual leaders who would not normally have access to such training. Carey is recognized by both Canada and the United States to award Certificates, Diplomas and Degrees in Theological Studies. Working with networks of churches in upwards of a dozen countries, Carey has focussed on training the next generation of pastors and teachers in countries such as The Philippines, Egypt, Lebanon, India, Cuba and Myanmar. We are Reformed in our theology, upholding the five "Solas," and hold to the 1689 Second London Baptist Confession of Faith, but welcome similarly convicted Presbyterian brothers to participate in this exciting ministry. Carey's motto is: "Training Spiritual leaders that shape the church and influence the nation."
Mission Statement: We passionately minister via a top-down approach that serves church networks through modular programs, distance education and conferences. We send qualified men who combine pastoral experience with academic excellence.
