Position: CEO
Organisation: Christian Religious Instruction Alliance Qld

The Christian Religious Instruction Alliance in Queensland is seeking to appoint a CEO.  The role is up to 4 days a week across 45 weeks each year.  The role provides flexibility that enables potential candidates options to meet their life stage and lifestyle choices.

The Alliance is a membership organisation made up of 15 major denominations and independent churches seeking to support and grow RI across Queensland.  The Alliance is looking for a person with a calling that fits with advancing and growing the ministry of Religious Instruction (RI) in State Schools.

Religious Instruction is the church in Queensland’s most extensive cooperative ministry. It reaches out to approximately 150 000 children every week because of 3,000 church volunteer and paid instructors.   RI in Queensland is transitioning toward more contemporary and engaging practices, re-generation, recruiting the next generation of RI practitioners.

The role is both visionary and strategic, and to champion positive engagement with RI key stakeholders – the Education Department, political parties, the churches, organisations that provide RI across the state, funders, as well as oversee 2 contractors and core operations, and, through the Executive Officer,  9 regional staff across the state.

The CEO will preferably have executive experience, will be a committed Christian leader who appreciates the tremendous kingdom opportunity that RI is for the young people of this state to explore, question, and discover Christian faith.

Ministering in a multi-denominational and education space has both opportunity scope and regulatory requirements.  RI in Qld is well positioned to build on the positive momentum already in place, and the next CEO will relish meeting current challenges with innovative and strategic leadership. The CEO will also be engaged in collaboration with other faiths which are delivering RI.

RI in Queensland has changed significantly over the last decade, including more contemporary and digitally enhanced curriculum, fostering the next generation of RI people, and shaping the future to keep this vital local church ministry.
