Executive Director – Champions of Hope

An urban youth discipleship ministry in South Dallas called Champions of Hope is in search of a new leader (executive director) who is passionate about Christian discipleship of urban youth.  Our current E.D. will be stepping away to focus more on her new season of life as a mother.

The foundation of Champions of Hope has been laid for the past nine years, and it is a strong foundation of matching Christian adults from around the Dallas area with 4th grade youth to mentor and disciple them through high school. We have mentored over 350 children and have 150 active mentors currently. The community is one of the most impoverished in Dallas, has some of the lowest performing schools and has extremely high rates of fatherless homes.

We believe this is a pivotal time for Champions of Hope to bring in a new leader to lead into the next season of impact in South Dallas. The culture that most influences the youth is shifting quickly away from any foundation of truth, and there are very few ministries or churches engaging in long term, gospel-driven relationships in our community. The mission and vision of Champions of Hope are strong and the community desperately needs the long-term relational focus that we hold to tightly.

The board is committed to the mission and finding the right leader to carry it forward. We are searching for qualified candidates who are driven, strong in the Lord, and passionate about urban youth and their families.
