Spiffy up that Resume
The National Association of Evangelicals launched a search today for someone to replace Richard Cizik as director of government affairs.
Cizik resigned in December after he told National Public Radio that he is shifting his views on same-sex unions.
A spokeswoman for the NAE said the organization does not have a set time frame that it wants to have the position filled.
From the release, here's what the individual will be expected to do.
The Director of Government Affairs will be responsible for representing the NAE before Congress, the White House and the Courts and will work to advance the approach and principles of the NAE document For the Health of the Nation: An Evangelical Call to Civic Responsibility.
Job qualifications include, among others, personal faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, agreement to and affirmation of the NAE Statement of Faith, and participation in an NAE affiliated congregation. Candidates must also possess knowledge of evangelical beliefs, history and community, along with experience in government affairs and a familiarity with politics and policies of concern to evangelicals.
