Rural Life Mission, located in Hagersville ON, is looking for an Executive Director to take over from the present one who is retiring. At the present time this is a part-time position. A good proportion of the work is done at the RLM office at 41 Main St. North. There are two other ladies who also work part-time in the office. The office manager does the administrative and secretarial duties and receipting. The bookkeeper keeps the bookkeeping up to date.

This is an administrative position but also requires some preaching/pulpit supply and deputation. As well, there is travel to northern Ontario to encourage our missionary couples and families and to discuss their ministry and provide counsel when needed. It involves leading prayer meetings, writing newsletters, helping with the planning of our RLM annual conference and setting the agenda for board meetings and facilitating these at the Mission office at least six or seven times a year. Right now, this is being done by Zoom meetings.

The Mission has a website (www.rurallifemission.ca) which contains the Statement of Faith and a short description of RLM ministry locations. There is a church in Armstrong ON, a Mission Home in Thunder Bay, as well as a camp located an hour southwest of Thunder Bay which operates all year round. The other two ministries of the RLM are churches located in Geraldton ON and Sprucedale ON.

The Mission was incorporated in 1945 in Ontario. It is an evangelical independent, faith-based mission. The workers are expected to raise their own prayer and financial support. There is a monthly salary.
