WTOP: 5 ways nonprofits can…
ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
Zion Church is a movement helping people EXPERIENCE God, ENGAGE in community, be EQUIPPED for ministry, and EMPOWERED to serve across various locations and technologies. A Christian, non-denominational, “seeker sensitive” church that intentionally embraces an all-are-welcome and nontraditional culture, Zion Church helps people become committed followers of Jesus Christ by serving the needs of its members, attenders, and communities through local, national, and international outreach and missions. Since its first gathering in 2000, under the leadership of its Senior Pastor, Zion Church has grown to over 20,000 members and attenders, with four physical campus throughout the Washington DC metropolitan area located in Fort Washington, Greenbelt, and Landover MD, and Woodbridge, VA, along with a dynamic virtual campus, Zion Anywhere, where thousands of online attenders and members meet weekly.
As it continues to experience significant growth and build upon its strengths, Zion Church has exclusively retained Nonprofit HR to assist in its search for an experienced Senior Human Resources Director (SHRD).
ABOUT THE ROLE
The SHRD is responsible and accountable for the full-cycle human capital functions for Zion Church. The SHRD actively engages in providing oversight to accomplish organization-wide Human Resources compliance, resolves employee relations issues utilizing effective mediation, and recommends best practices for each facet of the organization’s people operations. To ensure excellence for Zion’s service delivery infrastructure, the SHRD will work collaboratively with IT, Finance, Human Resources, Campus Operations, Campus Pastors, Multimedia Services, Communications and Marketing, Innovation, Life Groups, and the We are Zion Music Department, along with the Office of the Senior Pastor and the two division Chiefs. This is accomplished by creating an organizational culture of compliance, action-orientation, and participative management. The SHRD reports directly to the Chief Ministry and Business Services Officer and is a member of the senior leadership team.
Nonprofit HR is committed to fostering and maintaining a work environment where equity, diversity, inclusion & justice (EDIJ) are fully integrated into everything we do for the benefit of our employees and the clients that we serve. To fully realize our goal, we prioritize our understanding of the complexities of DEI within our workforce to inform our approach to talent management. We believe that this guides how we do our work, advise our clients to operationalize EDIJ and position our content and educational opportunities to help strengthen the talent management capacity of the social impact sector.
