Location / Chapter

Indian River County Area




Position Summary

The Executive Director Is:

  • Responsible to the board of directors for the chapter's day-to-day operations within the board's directives.
  • Accountable to the national service center (NSC) in matters of credentialing and chartering and to the local board for the operations of the Youth For Christ (YFC) chapter and fulfillment of its mission.
  • Responsible to see that the four 'roles of leadership' (visionary strategist, team developer, ministry developer, and resource steward) are executed with excellence.

It is unlikely that anyone person including the executive director would be gifted to lead all four 'roles of leadership' therefore:

  • Some 'roles of leadership' will always be the direct responsibility of the executive director.
  • Other 'roles of leadership' may be shared to one degree or another by several of the chapter's senior staff and/or board members.
  • And some additional 'roles of leadership' may be delegated to specific senior staff and/or board members based on gift mix, skills, and talents.

In smaller chapters such as ours, the executive director will be responsible for all areas with some delegation to gifted/talented board members or volunteers.
