Congo Initiative USA
Congo Initiative is an envisioned community of Christ-centered Congolese leaders and global partners united for the transformation of lives and a flourishing Democratic Republic of Congo. The mission of Congo Initiative USA is to promote Christian higher education, leadership formation, and community transformation in the DRC by providing financial and personnel support for Cl's founding program, the Université Chrétienne Bilingue du Congo, and for the broader work of Congo Initiative. Historically based in Durham, North Carolina, CI-USA has 2 full-time, 1 part-time staff members(s), several deeply engaged volunteers, and offers internships to college students engaged in ministry. The organization’s FY2020 budget was just over $1.2 million.
The new Executive Director will lead the organization’s ministry here in the US while working collaboratively with the leadership in DRC. He or she must be a person of great faith who has experience working within an African context. They should be aware of and/or appreciate the logistical, technological, and cultural complexities of working in Congo. The ideal candidate may be currently serving as a VP/executive-level leader or in a key development role in a larger international nonprofit, or they could be the missions/global outreach pastor at a large “missions-minded” church.
