Fraternus, a brotherhood of Catholic men and boys, is looking for a Director of Mission Development to serve in a leadership position. The Director of Mission Development will work closely with the New Chapter Officer in the initiating/training of new Fraternus Chapters, coordinate the general marketing and public strategy of Fraternus, and oversee national fundraising campaigns. The Director of Mission Development will be conversant on the philosophies and approaches of Fraternus and its ancillary efforts like Sword&Spade magazine, St. Joseph’s Farm, and even websites like ThoseCatholicMen.com. He must possess strong communication skills and understand the importance of relationships, the Catholic teaching on ordered households and society, and be a humble servant of this growing brotherhood. His role will ensure that the public presentation of the brotherhood is zealous, attractive, effective, and in line with the foundational principles of Fraternus.
Location: Preference would be in a Fraternus hub like Birmingham or near the home base of St. Joseph’s Farm in Columbus, NC. Exceptions may be made based on life and vocational situation and qualifications. Travel will likely be necessary for New Chapter training and donor visits.
