This job is strategic for the development of our frontline work. You will play a key part in the networking and engaging of new dioceses to partner with us as well as ensuring our current Centres of Mission are making a significant impact across Wales in bringing people to a living faith in Christ and implementing our DARE strategy.

For this role, we are looking for a creative visionary person, with a desire to see the DARE strategy of Church Army implemented through our Centres of Mission.

As part of the National Team, the Regional Development Officers work closely with the National Team based at the Wilson Carlie Centre in Sheffield, acting as a bridge to ensure that the Centre’s of Mission are best resourced for the work they need to do, and their amazing work is communicated back to National Office.
