Superintendent

Start Date: August 01, 2017

Due to a retirement, Langley Christian School (LCS) is seeking a mature, committed Christian and respected educator with demonstrated wisdom, a passion for educating children, and an exemplary record for leading people and change. S/He will be forward thinking, innovative and able to bring and execute a clear vision for the next chapter of education at LCS. The ideal candidate will have a demonstrated track record of success around the core components of the role; Christian education, strategic visioning, change management, people and programme development, finances, fund-raising and governance.
The successful candidate will have at least ten years of combined teaching and administrative experience, hold a Master’s degree, preferably in school administration and have current good standing, a teaching certificate and licensing in their present jurisdiction.

Langley Christian School is currently offering pre-school and K – 12 programmes. LCS has over 1000 students, a staff of over 120, and 475 families representing a diverse and supportive 50 churches in the Langley area. The Society of LCS is highly engaged and supportive. They love their teachers, staff and administrators and go out of their way to show it.

LCS is located in the vibrant and growing pasturelands of the Western Fraser Valley. Bound by the US border, the Pacific Coast Mountains and the Fraser River, it is only minutes away from the US, and 35 minutes from downtown Vancouver. A family might reasonably expect to ski in Whistler in the morning and sail at Whiterock in the afternoon. Perched on the edge of the Pacific Ocean, locals experience the dynamic cultural mix of First Nations, Asian, and European cultures in art, restaurants and festivals. Mild weather doesn’t begin to describe the Fraser Valley most of the time. The region is voted almost every year as one of the most desirable places to live IN THE WORLD. In short, this is a good place to live, work, play and a very good place to raise your family.   

Finally, the Superintendent of LCS will be an active member of a local church, an exemplary citizen who exhibits the character of a Christian Leader (1 Timothy 3). S/He will recognize and respect the strength and legacy of our just-reached sixty years of Christian education, and lead us into the next sixty years.

Interested applicants or enquiries please address them to: supersearch@langleychristian.com
Please include a cover letter, resume, pastoral, professional (2) and personal references (2), and a statement of faith.
