[Anglican Communion News Service] The historic Anglican mission agency CMS (Church Mission Society) is re-advertising for an executive leader after not appointing first time around.

The search process for a new person to lead the mission agency began late last year following the appointment of the organization’s community leader, the Rev. Canon Tim Dakin, as bishop of the Diocese of Winchester.

The agency, founded in 1799, now has more than 2,500 members and more than 200 global mission partners. It is seeking “a spiritually mature, committed Christian, passionate about mission and prayer, who can be a compelling role model for the ideals, ethos and values of CMS, working primarily within the Anglican Communion.” They must be a “clear communicator of vision, inspiring faith and hope in others, a team player with proven leadership skills, able to lead, motivate and manage staff, partners and members, confident in relating to people at all levels.”

CMS also is looking for someone with experience of cross-cultural working, collaboration and partnership and a strong track record of leading change in an influential, complex organization.
