12 hours per week, initial 12-month contract
£27,040 pa pro-rata plus pension contribution
St John’s is seeking to appoint a part-time Youth Leader to guide and develop our small but growing youth ministry.
You will be responsible for overseeing and developing the programme for 11-18 year olds, with a view to growing the number of young people coming to St John’s and nurturing their love of Jesus. You will manage, augment and encourage a team of volunteers working with youth, identifying and releasing gifting among them. You will be helping to shape the pattern of worship to increase the visibility of young people across different aspects of St John’s ministry, enabling their gifts to be fanned into flame. You will promote the welfare, healthy and safety of youth in all activities.
You will have recent experience and/or training in Christian youth ministry and there is a genuine occupational requirement that the postholder is a practising Christian. You will have experience of working with volunteers and are able to work well as part of a team. You will have proven ability to initiate and lead on new ideas and to communicate well with young people and with parents and carers. Most importantly, you will be fully committed to St John’s aim to ensure the safety and welfare of all its members and in particular children, young people and vulnerable adults.
The initial contract for this role will be for 12 months, but we anticipate extending this subject to progress made during this period and to ongoing funding. It is a great opportunity for someone to shape our ministry and to bring more young people to know the love of Jesus.
