The Anglican Church works with a wide variety of partners to deliver a message of love and support across a range of community sectors. Committed workers and volunteers assist the Church to provide ministry, outreach and care to Anglicans and the wider community. From parishes and schools to residential care facilities, community care and social service programs, to theological education and financial services, each commission undertakes a significant part of the Church’s work.

 

The Anglican Prison Ministry evolved in response to our Lord’s statement in Matthew 25:36, “I was in prison and you visited me” affirming the importance of not forgetting to care for the poor, the isolated and marginalised of our community.

Today in Queensland, our voluntary Prison Chaplains form part of an ecumenical team visiting approximately 7,000 people aged from 17 years up to in some instances prisoners in their 80’s incarcerated for a variety of reasons from minor offences to the most serious of crimes.

 

We are in need of Volunteer Prison Chaplains to offer pastoral and spiritual care to prisoners throughout Southern Queensland.  To be suitable, you would need the following:

  • To be baptised and a practicing Anglican who affirms the faith of the Church and belongs to and worships in an Anglican faith community
  • Be open to minister within an ecumenical and Multi – Faith environment
  • Confidence in engaging within a correctional system that can be authoritarian and punitive
  • The ability to exercise discretion and keep confidences
  • An understanding of sacred Scriptures, Anglican teachings, liturgy, and theology

 

Your dedication to the Anglican faith will include a commitment to attend monthly meetings, conduct an ecumenical service on designated Sundays and attend the annual 4-day In-Service Training.  You will offer exceptional communication and engagement skills, self-management, and have well-established self-care strategies in place.

 

Other requirements include:

  • Availability and Reliability – after training, a minimum of one shift per week, during business hours for a period of three months (possibility of longer term)
  • Confidentiality – this is critical to us and you will need to sign a Role Description which includes a confidentiality agreement
  • National Police Check and Working with Children Blue Card – we organise and pay for these if you don’t already have them

General Manager:

Position Vacant at City Mission PNG Port Moresby PNG.

 

The City Mission in Papua New Guinea is currently seeking a Missionary, to appoint as their new General Manager in Port Moresby PNG. This is a specific role to be filled by a committed Christian with previous experience in Management/Administration or Accounting. A strong missionary calling is required with an initial minimum commitment of 3-5 years.

 

Currently there are five Missionary families attached to the City Mission in PNG. The Mission takes in street youth aged 16- 24, with little or no education who are mostly involved in Rascal gangs in order to survive. In addition, the Mission accommodates children in crisis and those who are victims of incest and abuse. It also runs two Women’s Refuge’s for victims of rape and domestic violence.

 

The Mission operates in three cities and has 3/4 centres attached to each Mission. Our Headquarter is in Koki, Port Moresby and there are two other Missions situated in Lae, the second largest city in the country, and more recently Madang, another reasonable city where unemployment and crime is increasing. The Mission is non-denominational and works with all churches that are willing to support the Mission’s Christian ethos. The General Manager will report to a local Board that oversees the running of the Mission.

 

The General Manager will be responsible to oversee the operations of Port Moresby City Mission and look after a staff of around 100, mostly Papua New Guineans. Currently, Lae and Port Moresby accommodate approximately 170 young men in each centre, as well as women and children. Madang has around 80 residents.

 

The Mission has a church attached to both the Farm in Port Moresby and the Plantation in Lae. Both these sites are about 20 kilometers from their respective city centre’s. A national PNG Pastor is attached at all centre’s. A further church will be attached to the Madang centre in due course

 

The General Manager will operate from our Mission headquarters in the suburb of Koki in Port Moresby, but will live in a comfortable furnished home at the Mission Farm. It’s a 30 minute drive to our town office each day. The Mission provides a free Mission vehicle, free accommodation including free petrol, gas and electricity. Whilst we cannot afford a huge salary, your only expense in country would be food clothing and entertainment and a reasonable salary is offered to cover these expenses. Return airfares from place of appointment are also provided on an annual basis. Position is not suitable for couples with school age children, unless the wife was prepared to home school. International schools in PNG are available but the costs are exorbitant. Where possible it would be ideal for the wife to assist her husband in the running of the Mission and take an active interest especially in the area of women and children and if possible teaching literacy to the young men.

 

The ideal applicant for this position should have good social and relational skills and several years experience, in Management, Administration and/or Accounting. Some grant writing experience would be ideal but not essential. He would also need, not only to be able to supervise and delegate responsibilities but also to put checks and balances in place to make sure that jobs are followed through. There is a huge need for this person to mentor, train and evaluate senior National staff under him.  Previous experience in a third world country would also be beneficial but not essential, but there needs to be a willingness to learn and understand the culture of the PNG people. From a ministry point of view there is as much preaching, teaching and counseling as the General Manager wishes to involve himself in.

ICF Senior Pastor Search

The International Christian Fellowship of Phnom Penh (ICF), Cambodia, is seeking to recruit a Senior Pastor to fulfil the leadership role on the pastoral team of the church.

The ICF is an English speaking, expatriate, broadly evangelical, interdenominational church of around 300 adults and 80 children from over 30 different nationalities who live and work in Cambodia. The ICF community includes people in business, various kinds of relief and development workers, missionaries, diplomatic roles and other professionals. Most have demanding work roles, travel often and experience all the usual concerns of Christians everywhere.

The senior pastor will work in partnership with paid staff (currently a full-time administrator, and a full-time youth pastor) and a range of committed volunteers. The existing culture of team leadership between Pastor and Council of Elders (men and women) lends itself well to this model of future leadership for the ICF. There has been a clear sense that we should not focus on a narrow, pre-determined job description but rather see who God may be sending to work among us. While the usual range of needs in any international church must to be covered, the ICF Council would envisage that the senior pastor will be able to exercise real leadership in strengthening the ICF’s engagement with the wider expatriate community of Phnom Penh.

The regular activities of the ICF, for which the pastor would have overall responsibility, include Sunday services, oversee Sunday Schools and youth ministry, the usual pastoral care and prayer ministry involvements, the strengthening of the small home groups, and the exploration of other services to meet the needs of an increasingly culturally diverse community.

Experience (at least a decade) in church leadership and pastoral ministry, as well as international living and cross-cultural work, are essential: capacity to function well in a team leadership with both the other staff and the ICF Council likewise. As many in the ICF have attended Bible School and Theological Seminaries, it is expected that applicants have a minimum of three years of formal theological education at university level.

We hope to appoint a new senior pastor to take up duties by August/September 2018. However finding the person God has prepared for this role is incredibly important for the ICF body, so there will be some flexibility regarding timing.

Please read this file to see the qualifications for the role of the ICF Senior Pastor.
If you are qualified and interested in the position, please fill in this online application form.
Note that this application form, requires that you sign into your Google account first, such as GMail.
