Hours Full time (40 hour per week)
Salary £22,998 - £25,704

Closing Date Sunday 14 February 2021

Summary Of Role

About the Role

We are partnering with Beacon Church Blackpool to recruit a dynamic and visionary leader to launch and lead a new Eden team into the Central Drive area of Blackpool. Beacon Church is a church that loves God, loves people and loves Blackpool, led by pioneer minister Adrian Wolton.

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 Beacon Church Blackpool 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.

Application Process

Because this is a vocational role which involves relocating to the area and living incarnationally we strongly suggest the following process as you discern whether to submit an application:

  • Express interest in the role to [email protected]
  • Initial meeting with Church Leader and Regional Eden Leader
  • Visit to the area and meet Church Leader and Team (via Zoom)
  • Submit Application
  • Interview if shortlisted

Deadline for applications: Sunday 14 February 2021

Interviews to be held: Week commencing 22 February 2021

Position start date: 12 April 2021
