Chief Financial Officer
Location: Colorado Springs, CO
It is with great pleasure that we announce the search for the next Chief Financial Officer of Biblica, The International Bible Society. With a mission “To provide the Bible in accurate, contemporary translations and formats so more people around the world will have the opportunity to be transformed by Jesus Christ,” Biblica is poised for growth and ever-increasing global impact under the leadership of its exceptionally gifted and credentialed new CEO, Geof Morin. Leveraging a career of global leadership at the American Bible Society, Geof brings to Biblica both the global vision and specific expertise necessary to catapult this storied, 200+ year-old ministry into its next era of excellence alongside its Great Commission partners at home and around the world.
As a charter member of the Every Tribe, Every Nation (ETEN) alliance of Bible agencies, Biblica fulfills a unique and critical role in the global Bible translation space. Focused on providing contemporary translations of the Bible in the world’s major languages, Biblica’s translation work ensures approximately 80% of the world’s population has access to the Holy Scriptures in their own language. Biblica’s translations also serve as gateway texts for other translation agencies to access and use in translating scripture portions for smaller language groups currently living in Bible poverty.
As Geof begins his tenure as Biblica’s new CEO, he is focused on building world-class teams and partnerships at every level of the organization, starting with his Executive Leadership Team. Already served by strong executive team members including his Chief Advancement Officer and his Chief Ministry Officer, we are now recruiting Biblica’s new CFO in anticipated replacement of the ministry’s long-serving and tirelessly committed outgoing financial leader who is retiring.
The new CFO will serve as an anchor executive at Biblica’s global headquarters in beautiful Colorado Springs in the context of a global CEO and CAO whose responsibilities will have them frequently traveling. S/He must be an experienced and excellent financial strategist who can understand, embrace, and bring clarity to the financial management and growth of an international ministry operating in 55 countries and which counts as revenue streams royalties and publishing rights as well as a diversified and comprehensive fund development program. In addition to being a proven financial strategist and excellent leader of people, this role – like every other at Biblica – must be filled by a selfless and servant-hearted “player-coach” who is not afraid to roll up his/her sleeves and get into the weeds to help solve problems and facilitate the smooth day-to-day functioning of the organization. A nuanced understanding of GAAP as well as experience with the intricacies of global licensing agreements will both be strong assets for the new CFO. This position also oversees Human Resources, IT, and Facilities.
This will be a national search for the right candidate – highly qualified and clearly called by God – to come alongside this critical global organization as it grows into the opportunities the Lord is placing before the ministry. Biblica will assist with relocation for the successful candidate.—
