Sports Ministry | Scripture Union, Diocese of Gloucester & PSALMS Partnership
To help us grow as a hub of excellence, partnering with Scripture Union and the Diocese of Gloucester, you will be working with the Director of Sports Ministry and his team (including other new appointments). You will be an important and strategic part of equipping and encouraging churches to reach out into their communities introducing young people to the love and life of Jesus through your and their love of sport.
For the Strategic Sports Minister position, we will be looking for someone with a demonstrable passion for, and experience of, using sport in Christian ministry, particularly amongst young people. Some past involvement with Christians in Sport or similar organisation would be seen as an advantage, as would some formalised Bible teaching. The successful candidate is therefore likely to be a graduate with a proven sports record. As the Strategic Sports Minister, together with the other positions we are taking on (a Trainee Sports Minister and Interns), you will be the face-to-face contact with the community, delivering the Christian purpose of PSALMS to those whom we serve. The Strategic Sports Minister will primarily be responsible for developing sport-related youth work in a specific area of Stroud. Delivery of the main Christian activities of PSALMS requires a high level of Christian commitment. The successful candidate will be expected to sign the PSALMS and the Scripture Union Statements of Faith, and also the PSALMS Code of Conduct.
