Program Coordinator: Telecommute in the San Francisco Bay Area, United States


The Program Coordinator works closely with Lead Missionary and Founder Tricia Bølle on marketing, program planning and development, and general administration to execute ongoing programs and projects and ensure all tasks are properly understood, prioritized, assigned and followed up on.  The Program Coordinator’s primary role is to manage day-to-day communications and operations so the founder can stay on top of the mission, and continue advancing the dynamic vision for the organization, while protecting space and assisting with accountability needed for her personal and spiritual development.  

Strong, clear  written and verbal communication skills with the Founder, board members, staff, volunteers and missionaries are essential.  Likewise, the ability to delegate, promote effective time management, healthy communication, and work discipline among the team is critical, especially as the team is variably spread across different time zones and operate in flexible and dynamic work environments. Attention to detail and follow-through while keeping the big picture and organizational mission in mind is required.

A practicing Catholic Christian is a plus as our entire ministry focuses around the foundational missionary work of the Church in teaching the faith of Jesus Christ in foreign cultures as well as works of evangelization back home. Our mission fully adheres to Catholic doctrine and the Magisterium of the Church.
