President and Chief Executive Officer

Bread for the World (and its affiliate, Bread for the World Institute), a non-partisan, Christian movement to end hunger, seeks a dynamic person of faith to build upon an existing foundation by deepening existing relationships and engaging new communities and individuals in its critical mission of ending hunger. Bread for the World, a 501(c)(4), advocates at the federal level, with a collective Christian voice, to change policies, programs and conditions that allow hunger and poverty to persist.  Bread for the World Institute (the Institute), a 501(c)(3), performs policy analysis in support of Bread’s mission and identifies the changes needed to eliminate hunger and poverty.

In partnership with the Board of Directors, the President and CEO is responsible for providing strategic leadership and vision for Bread for the World (and Bread for the World Institute), ensuring the organization’s continued ability to significantly impact the lives of people living with hunger and poverty.  The President will inspire and motivate internal and external audiences, demonstrating a strong commitment to the mission of Bread for the World and exhibiting a deep calling to end hunger by 2030.

This is an exciting opportunity for a leader of Christian faith to affect change for people living with hunger and poverty in the United States and around the world.
