Children’s & Youth Ministry Worker – Grafton, North Coast NSW
Where: In the beautiful Clarence Valley on the North Coast of NSW, there is a position available in South Grafton Presbyterian Church (Connect Church) for a person to work 2 or 3 days a week as a children’s and youth worker.
What: The primary role will be to lead and develop existing gospel-shaped programs for children and youth. The focus will be on both evangelism and discipleship. The children’s ministry will consist of outreach and teaching to children (grades K-6) via kids club and kids church. The youth ministry will consist of outreach and teaching to youth (grades 7-12) via youth group and youth involvement in service/worship.
Who: This position will suit anyone who has a love for the Gospel and a deep desire to communicate the Gospel to young people in a strongly supportive church environment. Key to this position is the inclination to be relational and missional with the intention to build relationships with children/youth and their families. It would be beneficial to have either teacher or theology training, but neither is a pre-requisite.
When: The position is currently filled until the end of 2020. A starting date will be negotiated from beginning of 2021 onwards.
Job/Study Sharing – N.B. The local high school (South Grafton High) is currently seeking a part time (3 day a week) SRE teacher for 2021 onwards. It is very plausible to combine this Kids/Youth Ministry role with the SRE teaching role to make a full-time position.
Also, if the successful applicant wishes to commence or continue study, the church leadership is happy to negotiate a study/ministry sharing arrangement.

Senior Minister for Wavell Heights Presbyterian Church
For the last 10 years Wavell Heights Presbyterian Church has been guided by this vision – “In prayerful dependence on the Holy Spirit, and being guided by the unchanging truth of the Bible, our vision is to be a vibrant, intergenerational, multicultural community where the good news about Jesus Christ drives us into loving relationships, spiritual growth, willing service and clear witness – that the church might grow and God be glorified.”
Wavell Heights (www.wavellpc.org.au) is a growing congregation located in the suburbs on the northside of Brisbane. It has a ministry that is spread across a wide demographic of families, young adults, middle aged and elderly, along with a trend towards a multicultural audience reflecting the population of the area.
Over the past decade, the church has grown both spiritually and numerically from 25 people on a Sunday morning to a congregation that regularly sees attendances of 100+ including children each week. This has come as a result of teaching God’s Word, the fostering of a welcoming community, and ongoing openness towards change so that we might engage people in our community in the context of our contemporary culture.
There is now an opportunity for a new lead minister to shepherd this church for ongoing growth, provide vision for the congregation, along with insightful and practical leadership of its various ministries.

Part-time Youth/ Young Adult Coordinator at Chuwar Baptist Church
Attached is our pdf for the Youth/Young Adults Coordinator at Chuwar Baptist Church.
Chuwar Baps is located on the northern side of Ipswich right on the Warrego Highway, at 230 Mt Crosby Road, Chuwar.
We are a growing church coming out of Covid (between 50 to 70 on a Sunday) and have had a few new families and young people that we would love to minister to in a more targeted way. Hence the need for a Youth/Young Adults Coordinator. The role would be for 2 days per week as well as the expectation to attend Sunday Services. At the moment we only have one morning service. There are about 10-15 youth to start as the core group.
The role would involve running a youth ministry on Friday nights and encouraging young people to follow Christ to gather on Sunday. The role would also involve running a mid week young adults group.
The opportunity to grow as a preacher if desired would also be encouraged by the Senior Pastor.
The position is due to start when school returns at the end of Jan 2021.
All applications are to be sent to email@example.com. Any questions or interest can also be obtained by talking to the Senior Pastor – Jay Beatty on 0403 007 202.
