Lead Evangelist for Rochdale Centre of Mission
The Church Army is seeking to appoint a Lead Evangelist. This is an exciting opportunity for a pioneering Lead Evangelist, Lay or Ordained, to minister across two estates in Rochdale. Renewing Rochdale is establishing an ambitious network of interventions to revitalise the Christian witness and develop new and innovative fresh expressions of church. Rochdale CoM is one of four teams that will minister and plant churches across the town, whilst providing mutual support and prayer.
As Lead Evangelist you will be excited by living and working amongst people deeply disconnected from church, who face many challenges typical to urban estates, and be passionate about helping them to discover the joy and freedom of faith in Jesus Christ. You will communicate the good news by word, action, lifestyle and prayer, and will establish new Christian communities through building relationships, evangelistic projects and growing teams of volunteers. You will be joined by a Pioneer Evangelist who you will share in appointing. The CoM will resource and enable other churches in the Rochdale Deanery, that they may become more confident and capable in evangelism.
The successful candidate will love Jesus, love people, be an innovator who brings about change in people’s lives and in communities, and enjoys gathering and encouraging small teams.
