Lead evangelist for Langley Centre of mission

Location    Langley (Diocese of Birmingham, Borough of Sandwell)
Details This is an exciting opportunity for a pioneering Lead Evangelist in this industrial area in Sandwell, on the west Birmingham border.  This is an area of significant deprivation, made up principally of urban estates.

You are excited by living and working amongst people deeply disconnected from church, and by helping them to discover the joy and freedom of faith in Jesus Christ.  You want to build new relevant Christian communities amongst and with them. You will communicate the good news by word, action and lifestyle, as one of two evangelists working within a new Centre of Mission established by Church of England Birmingham and Church Army. One particular, but not exclusive, focus will be younger generations: parents, children, young people, and young adults.   

The successful candidate will be an innovator who gets new evangelistic projects going, and enjoys gathering and encouraging small teams.  If you’re passionate about unlocking God’s potential in people’s lives, please apply.
Salary £23,315 per annum
Hours 37.5 hours per week (including evenings and weekends)
Pension If a Church Army commissioned evangelist, non-contributory, operated by the Church of England Pensions Board.

If not Church Army commissioned then the employee will be assessed under auto-enrolement pension legislation and if eligible, minimum contributions will be made.
Housing A house will be provided in the area
Contract  Full Time, Fixed-Term (5 years)
DBS An enhanced DBS check required and compliance with Church Army’s Safer Ministry policy.
Occupational Requirement Under the provisions of the Equality Act 2010 there is a requirement that the post holder is a Christian with an active faith in Jesus Christ. The successful candidate must be in agreement with the vision and values of Church Army and the Church of England Birmingham.
Annual Leave 25 days, plus bank holidays (33 days in total).
Closing Date
