II. The firm has also been asked to assist in locating a higher education marketing professional for a very special need overseas.

Asia Pacific Nazarene University http://www.apnts.edu.ph/, a graduate school in the Wesleyan tradition, prepares men and women for Christlike leadership and excellence in Ministries. Located in the Phillipines, APNTS serves a diverse student body from all over that region and the world.

The University seeks an experienced member round out its leadership team. The specific need is for a person to provide assistance with business management and marketing but there will likely be exposure to the entire operation. Perhaps you are aware of a missions minded young professional with a Wesleyan background who is looking for solid experience in these areas. A willingness to serve for 2 years on a missionary salary is a must. Please contact the President, Dr. Bruce Oldham, at boldham@apnts.edu.ph.

If you need a financial professional and want a low-cost method to find the best fit, contact us. We charge a fraction of what others do and still offer a review of each submission to determine its fit.
