WIIS Seeks Seminar and Resource Coordinator

WIIS Seminar and Resource Coordinator
Position Description

The Western Institute for Intercultural Studies (WIIS) is an evangelical non-profit ministry devoted to assisting the church in its understanding of new religious movements such as Mormonism, the New Spirituality (“New Age”), and Neopaganism. It accomplishes its vision and mission in part through the creation and distribution of educational resources. Some of these resources include Bridges, a multimedia training program that helps Christians understand Mormonism as a culture and to be more effective in sharing their faith with cultural sensitivity and effectiveness. Another resource is Grounded which is designed to help junior and senior high school students as they understand their own Christian faith and to make the most of their relationships with Latter-day Saint friends.

WIIS is looking for someone who can serve as a Seminar and Resource Coordinator in the promotion of these resources to churches, denominations, and parachurch organizations. Ideal candidates will be evangelicals who understand and share the missions ministry philosophy of WIIS, understand the Bridges and Grounded resources, and have an understanding of the communication strategies necessary in working with diverse church denominations. A strong sense of interpersonal communication and a possible background in sales are also helpful. An ACT! contact management database with church leads, as well as a marketing strategy and training are available for those suited for this position.
