Veritas Forum Area Directors

The Veritas Forum is a fast-growing, strategic ministry that partners with Christian thought leaders, professors and campus ministries to engage universities and the broader public square with life’s most important questions. Veritas Forums put the Christian faith in dialogue with other beliefs and invite participants from all backgrounds to pursue Truth together.

The ministry’s core initiative, Veritas Forums, are a series of high-profile university programs that engage students and faculty from a range of worldviews in intellectually rigorous dialogue around life’s hardest questions and the relevance of Jesus Christ to those questions.

We are seeking candidates who are eager to build Veritas movements on campuses across the country. Candidates will have the opportunity to engage students, faculty, and administrators in discussions about the nature of truth, the purpose of life, the problem of injustice, and other critical topics – crafting Forums that point to Jesus in a unique and winsome way. These Forums impact thousands of students a year, and contribute to the pursuit of truth and dialogue that will affect many more.

To continue to deepen this work we are recruiting for a University Engagement Director who will serve campus ministry and student partners to host Forums at universities across New England. This role will be based out of our Cambridge, MA headquarters.

Veritas Forum Area Directors would be responsible for the following:

  • Lead team development and event execution of Veritas Forums on 10-20 campuses each academic year, depending on if they are working at full or part time capacity
  • Build strong, trust-based relationships with campus ministers and students on their campuses and with regional staff (e.g., area directors, regional directors), with the goal of building a self-replicating Veritas movement composed of partner ministries and students on each campus.
  • Act as a University engagement “consultant”, guiding the campus team to make strong decisions regarding engagement approach, outreach strategy, and Forum components (i.e., presenters, topics and formats) that will best engage their campuses.
  • Act as a bridge between the campus team and national resources (i.e., drawing on best practices, engaging with latest campus trends, recruiting and hosting speakers on campus).
  • Participate in broader strategic and operational work of Veritas, as needed.
  • University Engagement Directors will work closely with the VP of Forums and other Veritas staff and advisors. Regular travel to regional campuses is required (all costs will be covered, 2-3 visits per campus).
