The Interfaith Alliance of Colorado promotes justice, religious liberty and interfaith understanding through building relationships in order to educate, advocate, and catalyze social change.
We are seeking a dynamic leader to join our team as the full-time Congregation Land Campaign Manager. This position would serve as the lead contact and face of the CLC program for the Interfaith Alliance of Colorado.
As an outgrowth of the Interfaith Alliance’s mission to catalyze social change and in partnership with the nonprofit architects at Radian Inc, we launched the Congregation Land Campaign (CLC) in 2017 to activate the thousands of undeveloped acres owned by faith communities for attainable affordable-housing and other community benefits. There are four components to our initiative:
Promote the use of the faith community’s land for affordable housing
Facilitated workshops and charrettes to clarify project type
Production of a feasibility study and developers prospectus
Connections to the right service provider, developer, and financial partners
For more information on the CLC, please visit: https://interfaithallianceco.org/clc
The Congregation Land Campaign Manager will be responsible for:
Outreach to faith communities to educate them on the CLC and invite them to formally engage in the CLC program processes;
Assist with executing MOU’s with congregations that want to participate in the CLC program;
Plan and lead CLC information sessions for faith communities
Co-lead and facilitate the 4-6 month CLC workshop process with staff from Radian and Interfaith’s housing consultant;
Participate in CLC team planning meetings, assist with program management and development;
Provide detailed project management services with various faith community partners and the CLC team to execute the CLC process from beginning to end;
Help with developing program materials, templates, PPT’s and program documents
Assist with research when project’s hit obstacles, provide support for program meetings and assist with grant writing for the CLC; and
Collaborate with Interfaith Alliance staff to recruit new congregations and make adjustments to the program as necessary in addition to assisting other staff members in their work when necessary.
Applicants should have a working knowledge of faith community dynamics, including decision-making processes and denominational considerations that may factor into the CLC process. Applicants should be rooted in social justice values and have experience working with diverse stakeholders on complex issues such as affordable housing. In addition, applicants should have extensive project management experience, be an excellent written and verbal communicator, be open-minded, and a team player. Housing experience and/or real estate experience are a plus, but not necessary for consideration. Applicants should be available for full-time work and interested in making a multi-year commitment to this initiative.
