Evangelical Christian Credit Union (ECCU) is in search of a Chief Executive Officer (CEO) due to the retirement of its current CEO. The ideal candidate will be responsible for planning, analyzing, organizing and directing all aspects of the credit union’s operations and executing approved policies consistent with the Board’s mission and vision. This individual must ensure a strong capital base in order to protect its member’s assets while providing and promoting an innovative culture that supports the core element of the international service experience ECCU has established. Bachelor’s degree required, higher credentials preferred. A minimum of ten (10) years of related management experience within a progressive financial institution environment needed.
ECCU is a member-owned, not-for-profit cooperative institution. ECCU is an alliance of Christian churches, parachurch ministries, schools, workers, and individuals. While ECCU’s mission extends far beyond banking, they do provide a wide range of financial services and resources for both ministries as well as individuals affiliated with ministries. Their ministry banking resource has not always been called Evangelical Christian Credit Union. They began in 1964 as the Conservative Baptist Credit Union with a mission to serve ministers and missionaries of Conservative Baptist churches and organizations. In 1984, a merger with the Association of Christian Schools International Credit Union created ECCU. Since then, their staff has grown from 27 employees to 225, who together have helped ECCU earn the distinction of being a finalist each of the three years they participated in the Best Christian Workplaces’ annual survey. Today, Evangelical Christian Credit Union is now one of the largest credit unions on the West Coast with $1.1 billion in assets and over 12,000 members. Headquartered in Brea, California, ECCU also has a full service branch in Colorado Springs.
