At its Assembly on 5/3/22, the Synod of the Covenant approved a job description for a new contract position: Organizer of Synod Communities of Color.

This leader will draw on a community organizing approach to connect individuals and churches of color with each other, to discover joint interests as well as hopes for shared ministries and support from the Synod. It is a term position of approximately one year, at approximately half-time, and will be guided by a Steering Committee and report to the Synod Executive. The Asian, Black, Latino/Hispanic, Middle Eastern, and Native American communities have much to teach and much to gain as joint ministries bubble up and coalesce, facilitated by this Organizer position.

Please reach out to the Executive Chip Hardwick at 309-530-4578 or to ask questions, recommend candidates, or to apply with a cover letter and resume.
