Church Leader Required
Emmaus Church Centre with a congregation of about 50 is located in Severn Beach, BS35 4NP.
The church is run by a Leadership Team of lay believers whose core principles are to make disciples for Jesus, to live as a Christian Community and to reach out to transform society. The church is seeking a part time leader to join the Leadership Team, initially for 2 days per week. The post could become full-time, depending on the leader and what they have to offer.
The ideal candidate would have trained in a theological college or equivalent and have had past experience of a leadership role in a church.
The primary role of the leader would be to work with the Leadership Team in formulating a plan for the spiritual growth of the church, including the preparation of the content for Sunday services and Bible Studies. The leader's priorities are to ensure that the church is engaging with the community, connecting families to the church, being involved in re-establishing and organising children’s work, Youth work, toddler groups and working with our local school.
The leader would ideally collaborate with other church groups across the wider area to support and encourage each other.
Emmaus is currently short of music leaders so it would be desirable but not essential for the candidate to have musical abilities and a heart for helping with leading worship.
The leader would appeal to younger people yet be mature enough to understand the older ones.
We seek a leader with a visionary zeal for God’s plans to be carried out and who is not easily discouraged when the going gets tough. Please prayerfully consider if that is you and, if so, please submit an application letter (no more than two sides of A4) with your CV to John Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like to have a chat, or visit the church, please contact us on 01454 632274.
Closing date for applications is September 30th 2021
