Motown Mission is seeking a new director.

The director will be thoroughly committed to Motown Mission’s inclusive and collaborative stance on short term mission and community development. All candidates should have proven leadership, ministry, and relationship management experience.

Motown Mission is committed to work against the traditional and often harmful narrative of short term mission.
