Executive Director, Cooperative Congregational Studies Partnership

The Hartford Institute for Religion Research (HIRR) at Hartford Seminary has a thirty-four year record of rigorous, policy-relevant research, anticipation of emerging issues and commitment to the creative dissemination of learning. This record has earned the Institute an international reputation as an important bridge between the scholarly community and the practice of faith. As part of HIRR, the Cooperative Congregational Studies Partnership (CCSP) brings together more than 40 participants from Protestant, Catholic, Jewish, Muslim, Baha’i’ and Orthodox Church organizations to develop both quantitative and qualitative congregational research.

This research, known as the Faith Communities Today (FACT) Survey, has produced some of the most relevant research on congregational life in the United States since 2000 and has enabled pastors, church leaders, and scholars to make unprecedented comparisons among congregations and denominations. Position Description: HIRR is searching for a contracted, part-time (approximately 20 hours per week) Executive Director to manage the day-to-day activities of the CCSP and to expand the capacities of CCSP as a relevant research-generating entity. This position may be performed remotely or on-site at Hartford Seminary. The Executive Director will report to the Director of the Hartford Institute for Religion Research, who also serves as the Chair of CCSP.
