Description of Job
We are offering an opportunity to be part of St Swithin’s, Lincoln, a vibrant and growing church in the city centre as we begin to plant both locally in Lincoln and in Grimsby.
The LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT YEAR is designed for those who want to spend a year growing in leadership while serving in a church context. It’s a year, for you, that will help you discover more about who you are, grow in your relationship with God and knowledge and understanding of the bible and develop as a leader. But it’s also a year, for others, where you get the opportunity to serve God, making a difference in the people’s lives, learning how to be a disciple making disciple and get stuck in as we begin to church plant in the year ahead.
We’ll equip you with weekly training in both discipleship and leadership and give you opportunities to put what you are discovering into practice as you serve in a ministry area within the church (Ministry stream options: Youth//Kids//18-25’s//Media & Production//Worship). On top of that you’ll also get the opportunity to get stuck into other areas of church life, such as Alpha, Love Your Neighbour, services and church planting.
If you are have a desire to learn, you are a team player, hungry to grow as a disciple making disciple, and keen to lead by being intentional with your influence then this year could be for you.
If you are up for the challenge to spend a year stretching and growing yourself as you serve God and others, come and be part of the LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT YEAR and play your unique part to see lives and communities transformed in Lincoln and beyond.
You’ll work with us 3.5 days a week and its free to take part, but you’ll need to find a way to support yourself financial (perhaps with a part time job). We’ll find you accommodation with a host family within the church for approx £100 a month if you need it. (If finance is a problem, please don’t let that hold you back, we’ll be happy to chat it through with you)
