Pioneer Youth Evangelist for Bradford Centre of Mission (Sorted)
Closing date: 29th September 2022
The main focus of Bradford Centre of Mission is Sorted Youth Church, which reaches teenagers from a number of social housing estates around north Bradford. Sorted continues to grow as a worshipping community and we are keen for the right person with the necessary skills join our core team to deliver good youth work and share our Christian values.
‘By young people, for young people’ is a phrase that was coined by a young person to describe the increasing numbers of young people getting involved in Sorted’s teamwork, (albeit with adult supervision). Some young people have since joined Sorted’s leadership after becoming young adults, and have been employed part time. Sorted also works with adult and younger volunteers.
Sorted is the outworking of an ongoing partnership between Church Army and the Diocese of Leeds, and is a charity and company limited by guarantee.
The Pioneer Youth Evangelist can expect to be part of an exciting core team, be enabled and empowered, be supported and receive appropriate training whilst bringing their own gifts and experience to Sorted. The successful candidate will be someone with a real heart for working with young people including those with challenging behaviours. Applicants should be able to demonstrate passion and experience through some of the existing work that they do. Although experience is important, good youthwork practice is essential for working with young people, particularly acknowledging working within policies and procedures, a willingness to learn, relevant administration tasks and to be accountable.
