District Manager Compensation:

  • TFC Global is a Christian faith-based non-profit organization. We submit ourselves to God and have developed a culture of prayer and dependency on God. As part of this culture, we know we are to act in faith with boldness and courage based on our spiritual calling, passion, and giftedness. In powerful faith and a clear calling from God, a district manager steps out in that faith to raise support for their expenses and salary.
  • All TFC Global employees are responsible for raising awareness, prayer, and funds for the organization and compensation. As a faith-based non-profit, there are no automatic salaries for district managers.
  • District managers are self-funded with district performance incentives. This may require working a “paying job” until they are funded enough to give a percentage of time to the work of developing their district.
  • District managers raise funds through:
  • Funds raised through faith partners (donors)
  • District performance incentive-based pay
  • District Managers work with the TFC Global IO Staff (International Office/Base of TFC Global Operations) to track fundraising and incentive-based progress toward being fully funded.
  • TFC Global uses a “missions-based” model similar to other missions-based ministries, meaning we invite individuals, churches, organizations, and other sponsorships to participate as a financial faith partner of TFC Global.
  • These are the compensation goals set for TFC Global positions. However, these will vary based on fundraising and incentive goals met. This is for a basic reference:

District Managers Performance/Incentive-Based Pay Structure: 
  • District managers will receive performance compensation for:

1. $500 for every new chaplain recruited for TFC Global Chaplaincy Services who has successfully completed the 20-Hour CTI (Chaplains Training Institute) and has served as a TFC Global chaplain for 6 months.
