Now Hiring: Executive Director

December 16, 2019

PHS is seeking an Executive Director to be responsible for all operations and programs.

The Executive Director is responsible for collecting, preserving, interpreting, and sharing the story of American Presbyterianism with mid councils, congregations, and individuals. The position calls for a person with a mature faith in Jesus Christ and an enthusiastic commitment to the mission program of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) as noted in its theological confessions, the Book of Order, and the actions of the General Assembly.

The Executive Director will need an understanding of the ethos of the non-profit world and skill in nurturing a teamwork environment at many different levels including Office of the General Assembly colleagues, the Committee on the Office of the General Assembly, PHS Board members, donors, and PHS staff. The incumbent must have a passion for PHS, its mission to serve the PC(USA), and the broader community.

The Executive Director fosters the understanding of and research into the broader and more diverse histories of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) as efforts continue to dismantle white supremacy, sexism, and racism in the PC(USA). Functioning as the hub of communication, the Director works to keep all stakeholders informed and connected.
