DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS
Zambrano, Departamento de Francisco Morazán, Honduras
This position ideally begins in 2019 (Start date is flexible). The opportunity will be focused primarily on overseeing all the operations (academics, construction, agriculture, etc.) and ministry activities (bible studies, church services, discipleship, etc.) at The Leadership Center. Due to the nature of this position, it is ideal that a couple or family would apply, though all applications will be thoroughly considered. Still interested? You should know that TLC does not have the capabilities or the infrastructure of a university in the developed world: quite the contrary. Sometimes the electricity will go out. Sometimes the water will go out. For safety, the location is in a rural environment—far away from the big city. If you can go with the flow, improvise, and smile when things do not go as planned, you will help contribute to the positive atmosphere.
