Job Postings

The Centre for Christian Studies is looking to contract with a strategic planner.

Request for proposals: Strategic planning / social marketing consultant

About us: The Centre for Christian Studies is a Canadian theological school grounded in the tradition of diakonia. We prepare people for ministries in the United Church of Canada and the Anglican Church of Canada and offer lifelong learning for anyone who wants to deepen their faith-in-action. We are based in Winnipeg, but our students and volunteers come from across Canada.

The strategic challenge: Our last strategic planning exercise was in 2019. Since then, there have been significant and ongoing changes in the world caused by the global pandemic and other factors, as well as continuing changes in Church and community that affect every aspect of our life and work. We are seeking a strategic planning and social marketing consultant to guide CCS through a thorough strategic process with specific deliverables that will position us for a dynamic and sustainable future. 

Request for proposals: We are inviting strategic planning and social marketing consultants to submit a two-page detailed expression of interest that sets out a project outline, deliverables, credentials of the consultant and an estimated costing of each major component of the proposed process. The ideal consultant will have demonstrated experience with church organizations and educational institutions, and a strong background in social marketing and strategic planning processes. 

Timeline: Detailed expressions of interest should be submitted by Friday, March 31, 2023, at noon Central Time. The project is expected to commence in May of 2023 and be concluded by December of 2023. The Centre for Christian Studies will consider all expressions of interest and may engage in more detailed discussion with promising proposals. We will make a final decision based on the merit of the proposal, its suitability and applicability to CCS, the costs and also the credentials of the consultants.
