About Church Army

We are an Anglican evangelistic mission agency with a mission to ensure that those on the margins of society know and experience the transformative love of Jesus Christ.

Our founder’s aim was to reach those who felt no affinity with the church. Rather than try to bring people into church buildings, he instead grew a community of evangelists who travelled to wherever they were needed to share the message of Jesus in word and action.

With the same mission in mind, we have never stood still, always adapting to the changing needs around us. We now have over 200 Commissioned Evangelists working across the UK and Ireland.

Our work is as varied as the needs that exist. We work with the elderly, families, youth and children, across food poverty, homelessness, social isolation, education and mental health, church planting, chaplaincy, bible study and youth church.

The Role

We are seeking to appoint a new CEO with a heartfelt commitment to sharing God’s love with those most in need across the UK and Ireland. The ideal candidate will draw on their deep leadership experience and ability to develop and articulate an inspiring vision to lead Church Army as it continues to adapt to an ever-changing landscape of needs. You will have a good understanding of the financial drivers of an organisation, and be adept at fostering sustainable income growth. Outstanding communication, interpersonal, and relationship-building skills are essential, and you will relish the twin challenges of raising Church Army’s profile, whilst bringing together a large and diverse community of stakeholders.
