The Program Coordinator, Campolo Center for Ministry (CCM), will be joining during an exciting time in the Center as we look to solidify Dr. Tony Campolo’s legacy at Eastern through our Campolo Scholars, related events and lecture series, along with raising both current and future philanthropic support towards those endeavors.
Reporting to the Executive Director (ED), the Program Coordinator will be responsible for providing CCM with the administrative support required to sustain and grow the Campolo Scholars mentorship program, Campolo Scholars weekly forum, Campolo Fellows Lecture Series and other daily CCM functions, including managing and assisting Dr. Campolo’s ministry as needed.
