Community Team Leader

We have an opening for a Community Team Leader to oversee and co-ordinate activity to encourage and enable the growth of Christian community across the chaplaincy mission area. The Community Team Leader will model a life of serving and encouraging the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:12, 27) and growing the love of God’s people for one another (John 13:35). The Community Team Leader will be able to lead, champion and serve all aspects of the growth of Christian community, working under the direction of the chaplain and in consultation with other members of the staff team.

This is an integral role within our existing core communities, namely the student residential centre and Church of the Resurrection, and will seek to develop and grow new communities of fellowship and discipleship in line with our broader vision for chaplaincy across Belfast. We are looking for someone who has a heart and call for such a ministry, who will value and enhance the culture of the chaplaincy, who will be an integral member of the team, who is honest, servant-hearted, hard-working, and who can demonstrate an aptitude and capacity for the work required.

This involves envisioning, equipping, and mobilising servant hearted followers of Jesus Christ to promote unity, hospitality, discipleship, joy and creativity that the body of Christ might grow together and, in so doing, bear witness to Jesus. 

In order to apply you will need to complete the following application form and return it to the Operations Manager by 12 noon Friday 5th May 2017.
