The Greenhouse Movement is seeking an experienced Bookkeeping Assistant. Chicago-based Greenhouse is at the edge of exciting mission work nationally under the Anglican church, partnering with ministries that start new churches in urban Chicago, feed children at the Mexican border, and serve with Kenyan missionaries.

The Bookkeeping Assistant position requires a core competency in managing church, nonprofit, or small business accounting (Experience required; CPA not required but ideal). The bookkeeper ensures Greenhouse Movement is financially accurate, holds the highest ethical standards for donors and as to God, and can efficiently support our mission to expand mission staff and operations throughout the US.

The bookkeeper’s role is dual, working with both Greenhouse and the Cornerstone Parish, a family of churches within Greenhouse’s broader network. They are responsible for assisting in the daily financial operations of the mission organization, including payroll, accounts payable, donation processing, accountable reimbursement, and other miscellaneous transactions. Bookkeeping is currently in Quickbooks Online and experience is required. Quarterly and annual processes include internal reports and annual donor reports. They are also responsible for assisting the Cornerstone parish treasurer with the daily financial operations of the parish, including accounts payable, donation processing, accountable reimbursement, and general ledger.

The ideal bookkeeping assistant is highly ethical, detail oriented, motivated by “doing it right,” and willing to design or change new processes as our organization grows. An ideal candidate is familiar with legal regulations and ethical standards specific to Christian non-profits, including best practices in financial controls and management and donor accountability from the ECFA, federal (IRS) and state bodies.

As a church-based organization, any Greenhouse candidate is joining an active Christian team that includes weekly prayer and worship.

Ideal candidates are active with an Anglican Church in North America congregation, but we are happy to hear from others. Come join our team!
