Pioneer Evangelist for Impact 242 Haverfordwest Centre of Mission
Location: Wales Diocese of St Davids
Closing date: 23rd September 2021
In this role as Pioneer Evangelist, you will support the Impact 242 Haverfordwest Centre of Mission in all activities related to developing and building fresh expressions of worshipping communities and faith families in Merlin’s Bridge and Haverfordwest amongst the unchurched. You will be active in the local community working amongst partner organisations to provide Christian love and outreach. Specifically, this will be to those living on the estate in Merlin’s Bridge and within Haverfordwest who come from troubled backgrounds. You will be involved with the various evangelism, prophetic evangelism and discipleship taking place throughout the Centre of Mission across Merlin’s Bridge and Haverfordwest. You will also be involved in the current healing outreaches in the Centre of Mission and looking to develop your own impactful ministries.
Haverfordwest Centre of Mission is in partnership with St David’s Diocese. Part of the role will be to support work within the diocese relating to mission and evangelism. You will train people in pioneer evangelism, and work with those within the diocese to create a culture where sharing faith is part of their everyday Christian faith. This role will need someone who is experienced in pioneering Christian communities among the unchurched, and with a record of winning people for Christ – especially amongst people with troubled backgrounds and substance abuse issues. There is already exciting work taking place, and we are looking for someone with energy, passion, enthusiasm and faithfulness to both Jesus and the team to be involved with missional activities of the Centre of Mission. You will help develop links within the community. In this role, you will need to be able to work independently and as part of a team, as well as being able to work alongside all people and communities. As a Christian, you will keep Jesus as your top priority and be able to explore new ways of living out the gospel.
