VP, Global Operations
A commitment to global justice based on Christian principles drives Jim Carrie. Through extensive travels to Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Ghana, India, Nicaragua and Paraguay, Jim is focused on improving our program design and social impact as well as increasing resources through a successful grant strategy.
Jim oversees strategies for strengthening relationships with our donors, keeping them engaged and committed, so Christian Children's Fund of Canada (CCFC) can create a future of hope for children, families, and communities by helping them develop the skills and resources to overcome poverty and pursue justice.
With more than 25 years of development experience as a strategist with proven success in translating vision into operations practice, Jim is still impacted daily by his work. “Each of my trips to our countries of operation has involved at least one deeply moving experience,” the champion of child rights and former World Vision Canada executive recalls. “I have met individuals who have led through their personal courage and commitment to make a difference. Whether a CCFC staff member, one of our partners in the field or a volunteer in a CCFC-supported community, it's inspiring to see that through the work our donors have enabled us to achieve, someone can build on their dream for the future.”
Jim serves on the leadership team of Chartwell Baptist church, a community-oriented congregation in Mississauga (Clarkson), Ontario.
