Lead Evangelist for Gwent Valley Centre of Mission
As Lead Evangelist, you will lead to Centre of Mission in bringing the good news to Gwent Valley, unlocking God’s potential in the community. The Centre of Mission will focus on those on the edge of society and beyond normal church reach and will build new worshipping communities using Church Army’s DARE strategy and values. You will pioneer activities in areas not usually reached by the church and will build up a team of volunteers to help and be present in the community. A Pioneer Evangelist will be appointed in due course to work alongside, and under the leadership of, the Lead Evangelist in pioneering new expressions of ministry.
We are looking for someone with an active faith in Jesus Christ, whose life and ministry is Jesus-centred and trinity-based. You will need to be able to build in your own support structures as there may be times when you are working alone. You will need to be pioneering, creative, accepting of people, and collaborative. As the role requires you to be working in schools and in an isolated community, you will need a good understanding of safeguarding understanding and be able to take responsibility for your own spiritual growth.
