The Chief Operating Officer (COO) will act as the primary executive of ECCF and will report directly to the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors. The primary responsibility of the COO will be development, including fund-raising and outreach. It is expected that the COO will seek grant opportunities and oversee preparation of grant applications, and engage in outreach with supporting churches, other area churches, businesses and other organizations that may be potential supporters, and any other potential funding source. The COO will act as the public spokesperson for ECCF and promote and publicize the missions and activities of ECCF. The COO will also oversee the activities of the Program Directors of Helping Hands Ministry and CompuPlace, and act as a liaison to tenants.


ECCF is interested in candidates who will bring enthusiasm and show initiative in performing the duties of the COO. A candidate will have or be committed to developing key relationships with area community business and church leaders. A four-year degree is a requirement. Prior nonprofit related experience is not required, but is beneficial. Retired persons who are looking for fulfillment in community development and ministries of humanitarian care and service are also encouraged to apply.


Interested candidates should send their statement of interest and qualifications to any of the following Executive Committee members:
