AREA DIRECTOR POSITION DESCRIPTION                                                                  

 

Discipleship changes everything.

Our Area Directors help local churches become more effective in reaching and discipling men using proven strategies that increase the number of men attending church AND the number of men actively engaged in discipleship. Area Directors are part of a national movement to help churches create an environment where the Holy Spirit inspires men to engage in life-on-life discipleship.

Position Description   

  • Area Directors are full-time, self-funded leaders who are called to men's discipleship and want to use their training and knowledge to consult with churches to do so much more with their men than the usual Saturday morning pancake breakfast. Part-time opportunities may also be available. 
  • Area Directors are expected to maintain a spiritual life that reflects a consistent, daily dependence on Jesus Christ. Each one is a member in good-standing with his local church. If married, he maintains a solid and consistent relationship with his spouse. He is engaged with men on a regular basis to help them grow. In turn, they can help the Area Director maintain his own faith relationship with Christ. 
  • They serve church leaders in a consultative manner, offering strategies, methods, and tactics that have a significant, lasting impact.
  • They provide their expertise to the church at no charge because they are surrounded by people that resonate with the vision and mission and want to be a part of their ministry. They provide financially (and prayerfully) what is needed for the Area Director to do his work. Area Directors are good stewards of their ministry funds.
  • Church surveys are administered periodically so that progress can be measured over time on a quantitative basis - meaningful data for a pastor and his leadership team.
  • Area Directors are focused. They set annual goals and produce monthly reports on key metrics critical to the success of the mission.
  • Every Area Director is assigned to a Regional Team, led by a Regional Director who provides help, guidance, prayer support and more.
  • Area Directors are responsible for assembling local teams, or Advisory Councils, to help with his funding initiatives, provide strategic insights, support his work with local churches, and general accountability.
  • They build and maintain transparent, consistent, collaborative, and effective working relationships with the staff, their Regional Director, and the other men in the field.
  • Comprehensive training is provided for carrying out the work of an Area Director as well as how to raise funding for your ministry budget.  On-going professional development is provided.
  • Area Directors help churches disciple more men and create more disciple makers. They build meaningful relationships with churches, and provide ongoing information, assistance, and support. They serve as an engaging role model and reliable, capable resource.
