President & CEO
Headquartered in Omaha, LFS of Nebraska has 350 employees and 11 locations in Nebraska and Eastern Iowa. LFS supports three core competencies: Children’s Services, Community Services, and Behavioral Health. A ministry of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, the organization is nationally accredited by the Council on Accreditation and enjoys a strong reputation for quality and integrity across the state. The organization is financially solid, carries no debt, and has a robust fundraising function. In addition, LFS has made a significant investment in an Integrated Care approach to providing behavioral health services in Lincoln and is in conversation with partners to extend this cutting-edge model of care across its service area.
Through both personal example and professional leadership, the new President & CEO will demonstrate an unwavering commitment to the mission and vision of LFS. S/he will be highly visible in order to promote LFS’ profile, brand, and presence with key stakeholders; develop new and innovative talent recruitment and retention strategies; and plan and implement infrastructure growth that puts in place an IT strategy. It is preferred, but not required, that the President & CEO be a member of a Member Lutheran congregation.
