National Finance Manager - Awana International Canada

National Finance Manager

We are growing our team!

Do you have a passion to serve the local Church and love kids/youth ministry? We may have a role for you.

Finance Manager

Awana International Canada is a ministry focused on partnering with the local church in order to reach kids with the gospel, equip leaders as disciple-makers and change the world for Jesus. In all positions at Awana, it is foundational that your personal life and goals as a team member of AIC are to live for the Lord Jesus Christ above all else and represent him well in the work you do. 

We want everyone on our team to be outstanding supporters of the vision and mission of Awana. Providing great resources, support, and excellent service for our partnered churches and our team in the field are top priorities. These priorities drive our goals and expectations. 

The person we are looking for is highly adaptable and able to maintain the ministry from a financial perspective. A positive “can-do” attitude is a must as the ministry needs to flex and move based on the season. Our team is fun and works hard to get tasks done with excellence. Bringing new team members on is an exciting opportunity for us but is done with a great deal of caution to ensure the culture of our team continues to grow positively.
