Read Pastoral Minister (5 days - Female)
Christ Church Inner West Anglican Community (CCIW)
Location: Ashfield, NSW
Date advertised: 5th April 2018
Job Type: Full time
Closing Date: 22nd April 2018

At Christ Church Inner West (CCIW) our vision is Jesus, our mission is people and our cause is grace.   CCIW currently meets as five congregations across two sites that seeks to reach and serve our community with the gospel of Jesus Christ. 

Under God, CCIW has been blessed with significant growth in the last decade and we have recently finished building a new Ministry Centre to facilitate our growing ministries and congregations.  This newly created leadership role is central to this exciting vision.

We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic and gifted Pastoral Minister to join the team and serve in our vibrant morning and evening congregations at St John’s Ashfield. This is a key role in a truly exciting and growing ministry context.

We are currently seeking to employ a woman in this role as part of our commitment to ensuring that both women and men exercise ministry and leadership gifts in the life of each CCIW congregation.  The role is full time (5 days per week) though we are open to making the role part time (4 days per week) for the right candidate.

The role of the Pastoral Minister includes:

  • Organisational oversight and pastoral leadership in the St John’s Ashfield 10am and 6pm congregations.
  • Development of leaders and ministry teams to lead and grow the ministry.
  • Providing pastoral wisdom and oversight across St John’s Ashfield.

To be considered for the role you will have a positive and can-do attitude, with strong pastoral wisdom and experience in pastoring and discipling others.  You are theologically driven and energised, though not necessarily with a theological degree. You have proven leadership gifts with experience leading teams and driving ministries forward. You are a humble leader, pastorally warm, hardworking, faithful to the gospel, resilient and a self-starter.  A willingness to try new ideas is a must and is supported by your own desire to give and receive feedback.  You may be ordained as a deacon, or a lay minister in a parish or campus context.
