Job Description:

The Director of Local Missions provides strategic direction and oversight to locally oriented mission programs that maximize the congregation’s involvement in life-changing ministry beyond the walls of the church.  This involves developing first-class ministry leaders; effectively leading a team of dedicated staff and volunteer leaders; and cultivating strategic relationships within the communities that Church of the Resurrection serves.  Successful candidates will be passionate about helping non-religious and nominally religious people become deeply committed Christians through service to others with a proven track record of leading and managing staff and development of effective volunteer leaders and teams.  Additional requirements include the ability to cultivate relationships within the communities we serve, bridging across racial, denominational, ethnic and socio-economic lines; creativity with the ability to be a “big picture” leader who can track details of multiple and varying projects simultaneously; and solid communication, time management and problems solving skills.


Church of the Resurrection is a large, fast-paced church with four campuses supporting the Kansas City Metro. Our purpose is to create a Christian Community where non-religious and nominally religious people are becoming deeply committed Christians. Our vision is to change lives, transform the community, and renew the mainline church.
