Partner Development Coordinator

  Ambassadors for Christ International–Australia (AFCI) -
  Return to listings



God’s hand has been on Ambassadors for Christ International–Australia (AFCI) from its beginning, providing the vision, the personnel and the finances needed to move forward with bold steps of faith. Wide open doors of opportunity for expansion stand before us, both in Australia and internationally—more opportunities than we have the capacity to respond to on either front.

AFCI exists to accelerate the spread of the gospel through local churches across Australia and beyond. AFCI is funded by the donations of people who believe in this shared vision.

The person who fills this position will enable AFCI to accelerate the spread of the gospel as we activate believers in more and more churches to be witnesses for Jesus. You will lead our fundraising initiatives by putting in place a strategy that connects more effectively with our existing partners and draws many new people and funding sources to help fulfil our vision. You will effectively communicate how our ministry activities are moving our shared vision forward and motivate others to help reach our vision through partnership (by prayer, donations, or ministry with us). You will also function as part of our small but great team working together to create tools and resources around our purpose.


The person who will fit into our team is a person who enjoys a good relationship with God, who sees this job as a ministry, who leads with servant leadership, who is eager to pray together as a team, who likes to have fun, who talks through problems rather than burying them, who communicates well both verbally and in writing, and who likes to function as part of an effective team.


Our AFCI office is in Seven Hills NSW. Your role will include a mix of remote work and time in the office as agreed with your Team Leader.

Team Leadership
