ACCTS is a non-profit, non-denominational, U.S. based international ministry that assists in the development of Christian leaders in the armed forces of the world and in the establishment and growth of indigenous national and regional Military Christian Fellowships (MCFs).

Job Responsibilities:

  • Plan, organize, and direct ACCTS’ ministry in collaboration with the board of directors.
  • Lead over 60 staff members – mostly retired military and/or spouses – and recruit new staff.
  • Organize fundraising efforts and expand the current financial base.
  • Prioritize multiple existing international ministry partnerships.

  • Experience in military service, preferably in a senior military role.

Work Location/Hours: 
May operate out of the home office in Denver, Colorado, or work remotely from own home location, pending applicant’s situation and board decision. Monday through Friday and weekends as needed, including extensive U.S. and international travel. 

Starting Date:
The starting date of this position is flexible, as the current Executive Director will stay in this position until the new director is chosen. The new director may begin as early as Fall 2023 or as late as November/December 2024, depending on applicants received, their availability, and the board of directors’ final decision. 

Negotiable, plus health care, if needed. The Executive Director, like most ACCTS staff, is responsible for raising funds to help pay for salary and ministry expenses. However, a portion of the start-up salary for the first two years may be paid directly by ACCTS, while the Executive Director is in the process of raising support. If needed, moving expenses may also be supplemented by ACCTS. 

Education and Experience: 

  •   Must have bachelor’s degree. 
  •   Must have previously served in the armed forces, preferably in a senior role. 
  •   Previous experience in senior leadership roles in career and/or Christian ministry. 

Who should apply?
If you are a Christian who has already served in your nation’s armed forces and are looking for fulfilling post-career work, please consider applying for this position. This position requires dedication to the mission and frequent travel. It offers satisfaction and fulfillment in serving Christ, and its true compensation is the spiritual blessing of working to further Christ’s kingdom here on earth.
