You think you can do it?

From World Council of Churches website:

The World Council of Churches (WCC) has invited member churches and ecumenical partners to nominate candidates for the position of general secretary of the organization. The deadline for applications is 28 February 2009.

The general secretary – man or woman – is the organization's chief executive officer and serves as a spokesperson for the council. He or she is charged with the responsibility to interpret and promote the strategic vision of the WCC.

An active lay or ordained member of one of the member churches of the WCC, the general secretary is expected to be a gifted, skilled and experienced Christian theologian and leader with deep spiritual discernment grounded in scripture and prayer.

Find out more from its website. The post is the 'top executive position' of the council... so if you got it, you are the boss of the churches of the world (!).

You think you can do it? Ask your denomination to nominate you.
