Austin Seminary seeks a new Vice President for Finance and Administration. The ideal candidate will be an experienced financial executive with a successful record of managing diverse operations, broad intellectual interests and a personal commitment to sustaining and strengthening the distinctive identity and mission of Austin Seminary. For best consideration, candidates should submit these materials before June 15, 2015.
