We are excited to announce a wonderful opportunity to serve as the next Regional Development Director for Precept Ministries International in the mid-Atlantic region. Joining an established and nationally dispersed development team, this fundraising professional will help resource Precept’s global work through direct donor engagement. He/she will report to Precept’s Chief Development Officer, Elaine Watkins, and serve on a team of regional directors each focused on major donor and partner development.
Founded in 1970 by Jack and Kay Arthur, Precept Ministries International was raised up by God to establish people in His Word. Precept’s mission and vision are no smaller than the Great Commission itself. Starting with Kay Arthur teaching Bible studies for teenagers in the Arthur home, the ministry now produces a variety of Bible studies, trains leaders, and facilitates conferences around the world using the Precept™ Inductive Bible Study Method. These unique studies have been developed from years of diligent study and teaching experience; currently they are being used in over 180 countries and 70 languages.
As the ministry continues to grow under the leadership of CEO David Arthur and new Executive Director Ken Bowers, Precept is seeking an experienced development professional to serve in the Mid-Atlantic, a region for Precept that stretches from Kentucky and Indiana both east and northward, including Virginia and the entire Northeastern United States. The search will be limited to candidates living in one of these states who have proven major gifts fundraising experience in the region. Primary responsibility will be building lasting relationships with current and potential donors who can support the ministry of Precept with gifts of $5,000 or more. This will include the cultivation and solicitation of current and deferred gifts from existing givers and new prospects, including individuals, churches, and foundations.
Precept Ministries International exists to establish people in God’s Word. In nearly 180 countries and 70 languages, our leaders are using the Inductive Bible Study Method and materials to show others how to: discover truth for themselves, know their God, and to become disciples of Jesus Christ.
