Vacancy – Pioneer Evangelist for Ipswich Centre of Mission


In this role as Pioneer Evangelist you will reach out with the Good News to either Children and Families or Youth across South West Ipswich.

You will be the sort of person who is prepared to take calculated risks, go the second mile and demonstrate the love of Christ in word and action to every young person or family you come into contact with. You will be active in school’s work and work with others to build on the connections made through that work in order to develop sustainable, new worshipping communities.


You will work with an experienced Lead Evangelist and together you will create a team who will be prepared to share in the work and witness of the Centre of Mission. The whole deanery of Ipswich are working together on a six-year initiative, Inspiring Ipswich, which seeks to add 1500 new disciples and 25 new worshipping communities to what God is already doing across the town. You will be part of that initiative which will provide support and prayer in addition to the support from Church Army.

This role will need someone who is capable of pioneering Christian communities among the unchurched, and with a track record of helping people to find faith in Christ. In this role, you will need to be able to work independently, as well as being able to work alongside all people and communities. Your own faith will inspire you to find new and creative ways to share the love of Jesus with others.
