Youth Apprentice / Student Minister Position

 
 

Lugarno Anglican Church is seeking to employ an apprentice or student minister serving with youth.

Vision/Mission

Our church vision is to see Christ honoured as Lord and Saviour in every community. For our youth group we would love to see youth in every year from 7 to 12 represented by 2020. We would love to see the youth being discipled as followers of Jesus and some developed as leaders. We would love to see the youth group a place where Jesus is faithfully shared, all people are welcomed and loved and the group grows.

Role

meeting with the rector for regular training.

Leadership will involve praying for, teaching and spending time with youth. It may mean recruiting more leaders. The person would be a part of the church, worshipping at Lugarno on Sunday mornings and taking part in the life of the church.
