Vice President, Global Operations
A commitment to global justice based on Christian principles (Micah 6:8 To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God) drives Jim Carrie in his leadership role guiding CCFC’s six country offices. Through extensive travels to Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Ghana, India, Nicaragua and Paraguay, Jim has been strongly focused on improving the quality of our program design and social impact, and increasing resources through a successful grant strategy.
Jim also oversees strategies for strengthening relationships with our donors, keeping them engaged and committed so that 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.
Jim brings over 25 years of successful development experience to CCFC. A strategist with proven success in translating vision into operations practice, Jim is a proven leader in engaging teams to achieve desired goals. He is a champion of child rights, dedicated to ensuring that every child has access to clean water, good health and formal education, and to building a world where all children can live free from violence and exploitation.
“Each of my trips to our countries of operation has involved at least one deeply moving experience,” Jim 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 is inspiring to see that through the work our donors have enabled us to achieve, someone can build on their dream, their hope, and their vision for the future.”
Prior to joining CCFC, Jim held executive roles at World Vision Canada, including: Vice President, International Programs; Vice President, Planning and Operations; National Director, Rwanda; and Regional Director, East Africa. Active in his community, Jim serves on the leadership team of Chartwell Baptist church, a community oriented congregation in Mississauga (Clarkson) Ontario.
