Santa Maria Urban Ministry in San Jose is seeking an Executive Director, who serves as the Chief Executive Officer of Santa Maria Urban Ministry and is responsible for the organization’s consistent focus on and fulfillment of its mission, vision and strategic objectives. Because Santa Maria (SM) has its roots in the Episcopal Church, the Executive Director should promote and model a management style that reflects our heritage and the values set forth in our Mission Statement, particularly attributes of compassion, understanding, listening and dedication to the work of the Ministry.

Reporting to the Board of Directors’ Executive Committee, the ED provides management and oversight of fund development, programs, financial management, staffing and strategic planning.
