Hub 450 manager

Self-starting leader. People-focused entrepreneur. Christ-centered community builder. Do these words describe you? If so, Eastern Mennonite Missions (EMM) wants to talk with you. We're looking for a highly motivated manager to lead an innovative and cross-cultural center in downtown Lancaster City, Pa. 

In late 2020, EMM plans to relocate its international headquarters to the small — but thriving — city of Lancaster. "America's refugee capital," "an unlikely spot" with a global feast, and a place where immigrants have "permission to dream again" — these are a few of the names that the BBC, The New York Times, and The Washington Post have used to describe this city.
