Part time

Missional Youth Church Network – Strategic Lead

Location: Home-based

Closing date: 11th February 2022

The Missional Youth Church Network (MYCN) was established out of a desire to see churches grow their ministry to young people and equip, develop and encourage them to be leaders in mission.  The bold and exciting vision of the Network is to pioneer and establish missional youth churches, enabling 11-18 year olds to build community and discover faith in Christ. We’ve involved in over 70 ongoing conversations with churches and/or dioceses who want to explore missional youth church network. We’re working with more than 30 local schools, churches and community projects have already begun working together to reimagine church with young people.  A Learning Community of 30 youth leaders has also been established.

The Strategic Lead will work with the Director and MYCN team to expand the Network, utilising the different specialist gifts and experience of each member. Using their experience of pioneering and evangelising young people, making disciples and growing churches, and considering the latest research, examples of best practice and the Fresh Expressions learning journey.

The Strategic Lead is integral in helping a new generation of young leaders emerge from Missional Youth Churches (MYCs) and other places so they may be formed as missionary disciples, with potential to become future leaders in mission.
