This includes participation in the discernment process with inquirers (e.g., empathic listening, prayer, offering guidance, etc.). Since other TAP Staff are also involved in the inquiry/discernment phase, this involves a coordinating function as well.

  • Oversee the Onboarding and Benefits Specialist who manages the application process for inquirers, and manages the provision of benefits for Partners and TAP support staff.
  • Manage financial processes such as payroll, reimbursements, and cash advances (some of these functions are carried out by other staff, or in coordination with other staff).
  • Manage and oversee BambooHR (TAP’s HR software).
  • Manage the process of developing a memorandum of understanding between the local ministry partner, TAP and each Partner(s).
  • Provide guidance to Partners re home assignment, sabbaticals, re-entry and retirement.
  • Work collaboratively with the Member Care Director and Member Care Resource Team as appropriate to care for Partners.

Salary & Benefits: Salary is negotiable based on experience. Medical insurance is available. As a mission-sending agency, we would like to discuss with applicants their potential for support-raising all or a portion of their salary.
