It is with great pleasure that we announce our search for the next President and CEO of Caring Network of Illinois, formerly CareNet of DuPage. This chief executive search precedes a second, forthcoming search for the ministry’s next Vice President of Development which will begin shortly.
Changing hearts and saving lives, Caring Network is a Christ-centered, front-line ministry called to love and serve in the fight for life on the outskirts of Chicago in beautiful DuPage County and beyond. Stable, well supported, and poised for growth, we are seeking a visionary leader who is prepared spiritually and professionally to lead this vital, life-saving ministry.
Focused on serving the Chicago suburbs through its six centers, Caring Network welcomes women with unconditional love, Christ-centered counsel, and critical resources that offer the light of hope and truth. Often a first step for women facing an unplanned pregnancy, the ministry has honed its innovative approach over nearly 40 years and brings the very best tools and services into the crisis of an unplanned pregnancy—the latest in ultrasound technology and counselors skilled in intervention, addressing the complex issues that compel a mother to seek abortion as her answer. In almost four decades, Caring Network has been used by God to save many thousands of lives!
The President has responsibility to the Board of Directors for Caring Network’s mission effectiveness and advancement in achieving the vision. The President is responsible for providing leadership to the ministry overall and supervision to key leadership staff. The President will be a results-driven, entrepreneurial professional who provides leadership for growth and next levels of performance for all departments reporting – one who is able to unify and inspire staff around a shared vision to accomplish more together than they thought possible. The President will provide strategic direction for the ministry. S/he will be energetic and resourceful, possessing exceptional interpersonal skills. This top leadership position is the spokesperson for this evangelical ministry with both internal and external constituencies and therefore must communicate the highest levels of trust, integrity, and personal character.
