SAFCEI seeks Executive Director
The Southern African Faith Communities’ Environment Institute (SAFCEI), a multi-faith environmental NGO, is looking for an Executive Director to succeed Bishop Geoff Davies, SAFCEI’s founder and patron. She or he needs to have a deep faith and be committed to seeking justice for people and the planet. We are praying for a person of vision who will work with faith leaders, inspire the SAFCEI team and speak boldly to those in authority and power.
SAFCEI believes that justice must underpin all social and ecological interactions in order to build peaceful communities and a sustainable world. In his encyclical, Pope Francis calls on all people to care for “our common home”. The document highlights the unique role for an organisation like SAFCEI in promoting tolerance and cooperation between faith communities and in realising our common longing for the well-being of the community of life on earth.
We ask for your earnest prayers and assistance in finding a courageous leader to take SAFCEI forward. If you know of a person who would want to respond to this challenge and calling, please communicate with our Operations and acting Executive Director, Sean Brown < firstname.lastname@example.org >.
Please share this search request in communications with your networks. We would be grateful to hear from you about possible candidates by the middle of August or as soon thereafter as possible.
With our warm wishes and prayers that justice and peace will prevail.
