Associate Minister Growing Disciples Making Disciples

A unique opportunity exists for an individual who is passionate about nurturing and growing disciples and releasing ministry in others to be part of a ministry team based at St. Luke’s.

We are looking for someone to work alongside our Vicar, to bring extra leadership capacity and help shape the strategic direction of a number of exciting new initiatives as St. Luke’s seeks to establish itself as a resource church. It offers the chance to be part of an energetic and innovative team who are passionate about seeing God’s kingdom grow. We need someone with experience who can further strengthen leadership across two parishes and multiple congregations and share in the oversight of the staff team.

Closing date: 13 December 2020 / interview date 7 January 2021

This Capacity Building Post is funded through the Strategic Development Fund allocation to Southwell and Nottingham Diocese.

The major focus of the role will be on developing disciple-making processes, identifying and developing new leaders and supporting potential church planters in order that teams can consistently be released to establish and lead New Worshipping Communities. We have recently planted one new worshipping community in Gamston and the next one will be will in new housing in Edwalton parish.

St. Luke’s is a vibrant, charismatic, evangelical church to the south of Nottingham that works in partnership with The Church of the Holy Rood Edwalton. It is on an exciting journey as it transitions from being a church that faithfully serves its own parish to being a resource church that works with other churches to help them grow their ministry in new ways. It has been blessed over recent years with new growth and seeing lives transformed.

Central to our vision and ministry is the need to continually build and sustain the healthy core of both churches and remain true to our core values of “Celebrating God”, “Growing in Grace” and “Sharing Jesus”. We are therefore seeking a person with a passion for Jesus, the heart of an evangelist and a sensitivity to the Holy Spirit who loves to see people moving on in their discipleship and faith journey.

If you identify with our vision and values and have :-

- strong communication skills

- a clear ability to preach and teach the Bible

- a track record in overseeing and developing other leaders

we would love to hear from you.
