Job Description:

Executive Director

International Pentecostal Holiness Foundation


Since 2001, the International Pentecostal Holiness Foundation’s (IPHF) mission has been to offer pooled investment management services, deferred giving opportunities, fundraising, and other financial services to International Pentecostal Holiness churches, ministry centers, missions, evangelism, discipleship, the related ministries and institutions and their staff. By combining effective investment management with stewardship training, education, and assistance to local churches, church institutions, and individuals, IPHF envisions a philanthropic services program that will ignite extravagant generosity in support of the ministries and missions of the International Pentecostal Holiness Church (IPHC).

The IPHF is seeking a skilled philanthropic leader with a demonstrated passion for the stewardship of God’s gifts and service to God’s people.  The Executive Director will serve as “relationship-builder in chief” of the IPHF as it seeks to realize a bold new vision and strategic direction in support of the beliefs, values, and ministries of the International Pentecostal Holiness Church.  Primary among the objectives for growing the IPHF is the Foundation’s ability to promote contributions to the Foundation through philanthropic gifts and investments by local churches, church members, and others who care about the missions and ministries of the International Pentecostal Holiness Church (IPHC).

The IPHF is governed by a 5-member Board of Directors serving two-year terms. Operating revenues for the Foundation come primarily from administrative fees charged on funds invested with and administered by the IPHF.  As of January 1, 2019, total assets under management were approximately $13 million. IPHF promotes its stewardship ministry primarily within the regional conferences of the International Pentecostal Holiness Church across the United States.

Leadership Opportunity

Working in partnership with the Board of Directors, the Executive Director will have overall responsibility for guiding IPHF’s operations and growth. He or she will be IPHF’s chief advocate, spokesperson, and representative.

The Executive Director will have the opportunity to execute a philanthropic vision that will sustain and expand the IPHF’s commitment to the charitable needs of the IPHC. The ideal candidate will have successful and verifiable experience in the cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship of major and deferred gifts.  In addition, the candidate must demonstrate a commitment to relationship-building that genuinely respects and honors the interests of donors seeking to achieve their own philanthropic goals. 

Following an appropriate transition period, the Executive Director will be expected to work with the Board and staff, as well as other partners in ministry, to strengthen IPHF’s identity, range of services, and partnerships throughout the International Pentecostal Holiness Church with the goal of expanding philanthropic investment opportunities and services to the IPHC’s family of churches, institutions, clergy, and laity.

Key Responsibilities

IPHF’s Board of Directors will expect its next Executive Director to position IPHF as the premier stewardship partner and advocate with individuals, local churches, ministries, institutions, and Conference leaders within IPHC.

  • Church and Donor Engagement. The Executive Director will cultivate and motivate the philanthropic spirit of church members and other philanthropically-inclined supporters of IPHC ministries. The Executive Director will set annual goals related to church and donor engagement, stewardship of unit holders, and overall growth in philanthropic investments in the Foundation.  The leader will maintain a high level of public awareness about the ministry, services, and programs of IPHF as well as the IPHC; plan and implement strategies to promote the mission, understanding, and support of IPHF in local churches, conferences, and church-related institutions; cultivate IPHF’s visibility and relationships across the denomination through personal visits and effective communication methods with local churches, conference leaders, other ministry and institutional representatives  and Global Ministry Center leaders  headquartered in Oklahoma City, OK.
  • Philanthropic Leadership. Serving as IPHF’s primary philanthropic advocate, the leader will cultivate and motivate the philanthropic spirit of local churches and their members and others in the community who seek to support the vision, mission, and ministries of the International Pentecostal Holiness Church. The Executive Director’s focus will be on securing major and deferred gifts that can be invested with the Foundation for the benefit of local churches, conferences, ministries and institutions of the IPHC.
  • Board Relations. As the chief executive officer of IPHF and non-voting member of the Board, the Executive Director will serve as a critical partner with the Board, providing relevant and timely operational and donor/fund-holder updates, introducing industry trends and new opportunities for consideration, and seeking professional guidance from Board members regarding relevant governance issues. The Executive Director will be an active participant in Board discussions and planning activities and is expected to engage members as appropriate regarding critical issues and opportunities. 
  • Strategic Planning.

  • Communications. The Executive Director will guide the implementation of a strategic communications plan in support of branding IPHF as the philanthropic resource partner for local church clergy and laity in their support of ministries and institutions across the IPHC.  Attention must be given to defining IPHF’s value to the diverse membership found in the IPHC.
