Accountant - Part time
Christian Resource Ministries (CRM)
The vision of CRM is to reach and disciple people for Christ through churches and schools. CRM began as a church in 1976 in Springvale and purchased and moved to a new property in Clarinda in 1992. From those early days, there has been an entrepreneurial and pioneering spirit in the expression of the mission of the organisation.
In 1999, Heatherton Christian College was established on the same site as the church and both have prospered and grown alongside each other. The school has developed a reputation for excellence in Christ centred learning and the formation of good character. The alumni are achieving great results in many fields of service, the professions and industry.
Kingston City Church is a leading church in CRC Churches International and plays a significant role in the leadership and governance of the denomination. It is a Pentecostal church with influence across the south east of Melbourne. The church has significant assets and committed and resourceful people who seek to serve the community and be a positive and godly influence.
In 2015, the amalgamation with a small church in the west of Melbourne brought an opportunity to revive the congregation there and to establish a second campus of HCC. The new school, Wyndham Christian College, was launched in 2019 and has experienced exceptional growth in the first two years. There is an exciting future for CRM education as both campuses of the college are developing infrastructure to contain the growth potential.
Christian Resource Ministries is at an exciting juncture in its history where churches and schools are being birthed and new opportunities are being explored. The need for professional expertise is increasing because of the growth of the organisation. A person with a pioneering heart who values being a part of a dynamic team will find satisfaction and fulfillment in joining CRM.
