JOB ADVERT: PIONEER MISSIONER (YOUNGER ADULTS)
24 hours/week, based Oxford
Salary £17,500 (based on full-time £27,000)
The Parish of St Matthew’s with St Luke’s in South Oxford is seeking to employ the right candidate into a new role of Pioneer Missioner to lead engagement with younger adults (e.g. 20s/30s, ‘Millennials’, ‘GenZ’) across the parish.
The purpose of this role is to share the gospel with people in this age group, to deepen them in their faith and in how their spiritual lives impact everyday living. Our hope is that over the next 3-5 years the number of people in both churches will grow and that the presence and relevance of our church communities will increase across the Parish and be more responsive to the needs of younger adults.
If this vision inspires you, please see here for full details and how to apply. This will be a rolling process. Applications will be considered as they arrive and interviews arranged shortly after if appropriate. So please do not wait for the final closing date which is 15th December.
