We are partnering with St Stephen’s Church – led by Rev Jimmy Hinton – to recruit a dynamic and visionary leader to lead an Eden team into the West Bowling area of Bradford.
Eden is a part of the Message Trust family. We send and support teams of urban missionaries to live sacrificially, share the gospel and build authentic community in areas of deprivation.
You will lead, grow, equip and enable an Eden team (a group of 6-12 volunteer missionaries) to reach local young people and families through personal witness, a missional lifestyle and programmed activities, committing to the pursuit of long-term transformation in the community. You will live incarnationally in the heart of the community. Your employer will be St Stephen’s Church but you will also be supported and mentored by the local Eden Manager.
If you are a pioneer with a heart for community transformation and an ability to grow and serve through team leadership then please look further.
