Next Generation/Missional Pioneer
 
Brisbane North Church of Christ is a small but active congregation, located on Gympie Road in Kedron, 7 km from Brisbane’s CBD, which endeavors to be the living reality of Christ in the community through a variety of creative programs and services. We are about life in all of its fullness (John 10.10).
 
We are striving to reframe and replant our Vision of gathering, growing and going in the name of Christ to guide others into a flourishing relationship with Christ. To achieve this bold goal we are looking for a like-minded individual/s who will lead the church in connecting with the wider local community leading to a fresh and vital expression of being a follower of Jesus, as individuals and as a faith community. A commissioned demographic study indicated a dynamic community profile with an increasing percentage of millennials and young families moving into this locality.
 
The current congregation is open to discussion as to final ‘shape’ of ministry. This will include whether it be full/part time or composed of an individual and/or team.
 
We anticipate that the major areas of responsibility include:
  • Establishing and building a contemporary mission & ministry – possibly to younger families or millennials
  • Ministry Team leadership and strategic planning, including leadership development
  • Outreach into the community leading to the establishment of a vibrant expression of Christian lifestyle and worship
  • Preaching, teaching and praying
  • In cooperation with the transition team/eldership, create and maintain a bridge between the different congregational expressions of church
We are looking for a team leader/s who will fulfil the following core criteria:
  • Deep and ongoing personal relationship with Christ and reliance on His Spirit
  • Identify with the vision, values and mission of this church
  • A minimum of a bachelor’s degree in any area
  • Appropriate theological training is vital as is familiarity with the ethos of Churches of Christ
  • A proven track record of effective contemporary ministry and mission within a local community
  • Experience with current change strategies is of benefit
  • Awareness of their strengths and ability to utilise the strengths of others to complement their weaknesses
  • Well organised with excellent communication, relational and strategic planning skills
  • Working experience outside of the Church is considered to be valuable, though not essential
  • Applicant/s must have the right to live and work in Australia
  • Hold a current Australian driving license.
 
The successful applicant will be required to possess a Blue Card; have a National Police Record Check; sign the Churches of Christ Queensland Code of Conduct for Ministering Persons; and obtain a Churches of Christ Ministering Person Accreditation.
  
Conditions:
  • This will be up to the equivalent of a full-time position with salary and conditions based on recommendation of Churches of Christ Queensland.
  • Ongoing close liaison with current transition team will be necessary.
  • The person has the opportunity to join the cohort of pioneers and renovators from across Churches of Christ Queensland as a wider network of support.
  • Commencement date: to be negotiated.
