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

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.
